Connect Amazon Fire Stick To the Internet
Now in case you are still facing an issue connecting Firestick to WiFi or else the speed is quite slow and you are facing the buffering issue. Then for this, I would simply suggest you connect to the Ethernet connection instead of wifi. Because the WiFi signals don’t provide the same speed as the wired network provides.
Even though you face signal issues because of some hindrance and even you may not receive full signals. There could be different reasons for this but the problem is the same you will face a buffering issue or see Home Screen not available. In this way when you use a wired connection you won’t face any buffering issues or other wifi-related problems.
But the problem is unlike Google Chromecast or Nvidia Shield, Fire TV doesn’t offer an Ethernet port. That means you cannot connect it to the wired internet. Thankfully they also provide a solution for this which is using an Ethernet Adapter to connect the firestick with Ethernet directly.
Amazon introduces its own Ethernet Adapter that can be used for wired connection and even so there are many third-party brands are also available. To solve the problem I have listed some of the best adapters that you can buy at an affordable price and are compatible with his device which you can check here: Best Firestick Ethernet Adapter
Using an adapter is quite simple as once you have purchased it then you will be required to plug the ethernet cable into the port. Also, connect the Micro USB of the wall socket to the female port on the Ethernet adapter. Now from the next end connect Micro USB to the port on FireTV and then plug it into the TV.
After this simply turn on the TV and then let Fire Stick boot completely and once it is done the device will be connected to the ethernet. You can check the status by going to Settings > Networks and here you will see it shows a wired connection instead of WiFi which means you are now done with it.
This is the simple and easiest guide that you can follow to learn how to connect Firestick to WiFi. I have provided you with each step so make sure to follow the guide completely. As if you miss anything you might not be able to understand the whole process or didn’t find your WiFi in the settings.
Despite this, if you are having any issues with the WiFi connectivity or facing the buffering issue. Then I have provided a simple and less expensive solution for you.
