Using [UGREEN RJ45 Ethernet Adapter] can you use a flash drive plugged in to create an external storage. Using just the amazon adapter and OTG cable with a flash drive I can’t seem to get it to work. If I go to wifi without an adapter I can get it to work. Help would be greatly appreciated. :pray:

I have installed two of these devices (two different tv’s)…wow, the download speed is incredible…My service is “less than 400” but I typically get about 200. With the amazon adapter I would only get about 40 (all without VPN–with vpn, speed dropped to 15). However, I have discovered an anomaly. When I use the new device with IPVanish, my download speed drops to 72 (no surprise in the drop). However, just for giggles, I used another vpn ExpressVPN and get download speed of 95. I tried this experiment on both tvs and got similar results. I realize that that I shouldn’t even need the 72 for watching movies etc but I thought IPVanish was the “fastest”. I was careful in selecting the hubs for each service and chose the cities that were approximately the same distance apart. However, in either case, I am getting substantially better speed with the new adapter than the amazon adapter…btw, some would ask why I have two vpn’s…I travel out of the country often and found that I am unable to get netflix or amazon prime since they are out of area --even using the IPVanish. Someone recommended ExpressVpn so I tried it and was able to get these channels out of the country. It was my understanding that the vpn was supposed to mask my location but obviously that doesn’t always work. I actually contacted IPVanish and they gave me some kind of b.s. why their system didn’t protect me with netflix/prime. However, the Express Vpn does seem to work
