Google’s Chromecast is one of the most affordable ways to turn a standard TV into a smart TV. Plug the $35 stick into the HDMI port of your TV, connect it to your WiFi network, and you can stream content from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and other services while using your phone, tablet, or computer as a remote control.
You can even use a Chromecast to play games.
But what if you don’t have a reliable WiFi connection? No problem. Now you can use an Ethernet cable.
Google has just released a $15 Ethernet adapter for Chromecast.
The Chromecast itself only has one port: a micro USB port which you’d normally use to connect a power cable. But if you plug in the Ethernet adapter, it’ll not only provide power to the Chromecast, but also let you plug in an Ethernet cable so you can connect your Chromecast directly to your router with a wired connection.
The adapter supports 10/100 Ethernet connections, works with a standard RJ-45 cable, and basically replaces the cable that comes with the Chromecast.
