Whether you have a little $20 Wi-Fi router or a $500 mesh wireless system, one thing is universally true: wired internet connections will always be consistently faster and far more reliable than wireless internet connections. It’s just a fact of life. Wired internet isn’t impacted by things like interference and device congestion. The downside, of course, is that running cat6 cable and installing Ethernet ports in your home is very expensive. Instead of hiring an electrician and spending a fortune, check out the D-Link DHP-601AV Powerline Internet Adapter Kit, which uses sorcery to convert your existing power lines and standard wall outlets into Ethernet ports. Okay fine, so it doesn’t use sorcery. It’s still the best $40 you’ll ever spend.

Here’s what you need to know from the product page:

  • High speed up to 1000 Mbps, Home Plug AV2 compliant
