Everyone loves the Nintendo Switch. Well, everyone who has actually managed to get their hands on a Nintendo Switch loves it. It’s popping up in stores a bit more frequently these days, but it’s still difficult to find one quickly unless you pay a premium on Amazon. If you do have one though, you’ll notice that things tend to slow down a bit from time to time. The good news is all it takes to fix it and double your download speeds at the same time is a simple $15 gadget. Pick up a UGREEN Network Adapter on Amazon, connect your Switch to Ethernet (get a powerline internet kit if you don’t have Ethernet in your home), and you’re good to go.
