Wireless Ethernet Adapter Made Easy: Use Your Laptop
Some home or office devices are not able to connect directly to the Internet through a WiFi connection. These include smart TVs, media players, gaming consoles, e-readers. Some of these devices need a wired Ethernet connection to the Internet.
Naturally, if you’ve got your home or office wired from a router to each device’s location, then it’s simple to plug the Ethernet cable in. But, what if you don’t have Ethernet cables going where you need them? Since you have a WiFi connection, you need a Ethernet to WiFi adapter. This way, your smart TV or media device can use that connection to access the Internet.
Read below to see how to turn your own laptop into a fast and convenient Ethernet to WiFi adapter.
