recommendation request -Wifi to Ethernet adapter.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Use case: I have a home NAS that only has wired networking ports, no built in wifi.  For reasons I want the NAS to live in a room that I can't put wired network access into. I have an Asus RT-AC68U wifi router I would like to connect the NAS to. 

Looking for product recommendations. I'm thinking an access point would be overkill. I would like a small wifi to wired network adapter of some kind. 5ghz and AC would be nice but not required. 100mbit is fine but gigabit would be nice also.

linksys has a wide range of range extenders (bah-dum-tish) whjich *may* be able to use their ethernet port to turn the wireless signal back into wired, but their documentation is rather sparse on that front..

 

EDIT: they do refer to it rather vaguely in their marketing materials:

Quote

CONNECT A WIRED DEVICE WITH GIGABIT ETHERNET PORT

Connect a game console, Blu-ray player, or Smart TV to the AC1900's Gigabit Ethernet port to enjoy Wi-Fi up to 10 times faster than Fast Ethernet.

TP Link's "regular consumer" targetted stuff usually has the wireless performance of a rotary phone, however..

 

any experience on the nano specificly on this front?
