4. Ethernet Solutions

A practical Ethernet adapter provides the best solution for the following:

● If your Wi-Fi is congested maybe because someone is busy downloading.
● You might have a poor wireless signal.
● When you have no wireless router at home.
● If your home experiences poor performance from the network
● If your old wireless router only supports up to 802.11b.

To get faster internet connections, you will need a device that provides a speed of full 10/100 Mbps Ethernet performance. The micro-USB 2.0 should be at 480 Mbps so that you can enjoy a faster and reliable internet access.

With a plug & play device, you do not need to do any installation of a driver for your Ethernet adapter. Once it is plugged in, it simply gets to work. You are then free from channel, frequency, interference and security issues. Get a USB power cable and Micro USB cable that has enough length to reach so that it does not hang in the air. This may lead to a weak Ethernet connectivity.
