We absolutely love Amazon’s streaming media devices, especially the current-generation Fire TV Stick and the 4K Fire TV. They feature one of the best interfaces ever, and they support every single streaming service you could possibly want. In fact, their only real limitation has nothing to do with the devices themselves. Instead, it’s your network. Sometimes other people in your household hog the Wi-Fi and it causes problems with your streams, which is the absolute last thing you want when you’re trying to binge-watch your favorite TV show. Luckily, all you need to make sure it never happens again is the UGREEN Ethernet Adapter, which is on sale on Amazon for just $16 and change when you clip the on-site 5% coupon. This simple gadget lets you connect your Fire TV to Ethernet, guaranteeing you always have the fastest possible data speeds. Make buffering a thing of the past.
