Google has today launched a new Chromecast Ethernet Adapter in the US which has been created to provide a wired connection for their Chromecast HDMI dongle, when your large screen TV may be positioned in a hard to reach wireless location.
The Chromecast Ethernet 10/100 adapter is an optional accessory that allows you to connect your Chromecast directly to your router for a faster reliable connection, when the 2.4GHz N WiFi signal isn’t at its strongest.
Google has priced the new Ethernet adapter at $15 and is now available to purchase and is now shipping to consumers and is equipped with a RJ-45 port, USB micro-B plug and AC plug. Although the first batch of adapters has already sold out but you can be sure that Google will be preparing to make more available very soon. As soon as they do we will keep you updated as always. Google explains :
A wired connection for hard-to-reach Wi-Fi spots in your home. Connect the included USB cable to the Chromecast, run an Ethernet cable from the router to the power supply, and plug in.
