If you want to speed up your computer, media streaming device, video game console, or anything else, there’s something important that you need to know: no matter how much you spend on a router or a mesh Wi-Fi system, no wireless connection will ever be as fast or as reliable as a wired internet connection. The problem, of course, is that running Cat6 cable and installing Ethernet ports is expensive. If you’re looking for a great alternative, check out the TP-Link AV1000 Gigabit Powerline Ethernet Adapter Kit.
