Thanks for the fast response.

I bought a "FireStick" but the movies load pretty slow. I have 50/50 Mbps speed so even though i'm wireless the connection should still be good but for some reason it's not. So I figured i'd buy some sort of an adapter to see if maybe that is the problem. The router and Tv are in the same room too.

That's not a smart TV.

Kees noted it and why.

How about a nice Roku?

Ahh, that's a little clearer.

You may have to move up to the Fire TV. I have their latest and it's not instant but good enough.

I don't really have the money to be buying another tv right now. Are there any adapters that you may know of that will work?

No adapters will help on this one.

The stick does not have an interface for Ethernet or any USB to Ethernet device.
