The best thing about streaming media devices like the Fire TV Stick and Roku Streaming Stick is, well, everything. But what makes them better than their set-top box counterparts is the fact that they’re so compact and they can be tucked away in an HDMI port behind your TV. They do have one shortcoming compared to boxes though: there’s no Ethernet port. Because of that, you’re at the mercy of Wi-Fi… unless you know about this awesome accessory. The UGREEN Ethernet Adapter lets you connect your Fire TV Stick, Fire TV, Roku Stick, Chromecast, and more to the internet via Ethernet so you’re no longer impacted by inevitable Wi-Fi connectivity issues. It’s a bargain at $17, but you’ll snag it for just $11.89 if you use the coupon code 303C6HVX at checkout.
