New Video: Tech Choice USB to Ethernet adapter

It might seem like such a little thing. And not only that, we’ve covered it before. If you’re looking for some good information about our Tech Choice USB to Ethernet Adapter, you might want to take a look at this article from a little earlier this year. In it, Jake Buckler really lays out the case for having wired Ethernet when you need it. But if you want to see things explained in an easy-to-understand way, you’ll love this video.

Here’s the bottom line.

This video shows it easly. Wi-Fi connections are convenient, but they can be slow. That’s the last thing you want if you’re gaming, backing up, or moving large files. You probably pay for really fast internet in your home, but chances are you don’t get the speed you want. It’s not actually the cable company’s fault. (Sometimes.) If you aren’t very close to your router, you’re probably getting slow Wi-Fi no matter how fast your home internet is.

Manufacturers know this…

but in the quest to save a few dollars and an inch or so of space on the device, they often leave off Ethernet ports. That’s a problem if you’re trying to get the best speeds. This USB-to-Ethernet adapter solves this problem easily. It will work with all “Type A” Ethernet ports (in other words the connectors that plug in here:)

The device works best with USB 3.0, which are the ports with the blue plastic insert in the center. That’s how you’ll get the maximum speed.

What if you have USB-C instead?

More and more laptops aren’t even coming with full-sized USB ports anymore. Instead, they come with USB-C. USB-C is better in pretty much every way. It’s easier to connect, it carries more power, and it’s faster. If you need a network adapter for your USB-C device, Solid Signal has you covered with this adapter. It does the same thing but connects to USB-C instead of USB Type A.

May as well buy a couple of these…

Once your friends see how fast your gaming performance is, they’ll want one. Once your coworkers see your incredible productivity, they’ll want one. And let’s face facts… this is a dongle and there’s a 50/50 chance you’ll lose it or leave it somewhere. May as well be prepared.
