How to use ethernet cable

Right now i run on wifi my internet box is to far away do i need that to hook up cable or am i stuck with wifi

You can use a Cable to USB , you don’t say which device you are using but you can find USB/Ethernet adapters which work well , I have used them on Android TVs with good performance.

I ran an extra ethernet about 45ft from my bedroom to the Livingroom where my box is located. I was a little concerned about the lengthy run, but everything works perfectly. I read somewhere as long as you keep the run under 100’ you should be fine?

Ok thanks for the info

Powerline adapters work great.I use them instead of wifi. It runs through your electrical outlets.


If you’re going to do a long run of ethernet, look into cat6a. It’s rated faster over longer distances. There’s also 6e and 7 but they’re not really recognized as viable standard yet.
