No Ethernet port on ROKU...adapt to USB or HDMI?

My ROKU 32" TV has no ethernet port and my wireless signal is not great, TV has to stop and wait etc. Question, will a ethernet to USB or HDMI work if I want to hardwire with an ethernet cable?

Re: No Ethernet port on ROKU...adapt to USB or HDMI?

There are some Roku TVs that have successfully used a USB Ethernet adapter, but I can't say what TV and what adapter worked. You might do a search of the Community here and see if you can find an older post. They aren't officially supported, but they have worked.

For Roku players (not a TV version), no Ethernet adapter is available. The Ultra has an Ethernet jack if you must have a wired connection, but you can't add one to devices without them. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
