Re: can you connect ethernet to express 4k+


Yes, you can use a USB ethernet adapter to make the the Express 4k+ ethernet capable/wired.

The following Roku Support article provides some compatible adapters. 

How to use USB to connect your Roku streaming device to a wired network


Users have gotten other adapters to work other than what is on this list.  To maximize compatibility, try looking for one that supports 10/100 and has chipset AX8877X or SMSC95XX.  (Some have reported that some 10/100/1000 adapters will work, but if you stick to the recommended 10/100 with the above chipsets, you should have no issues).  The (X) at the end of the chipsets will be numbers when looking at specs.
