I’m going to be sitting in a room full of people next week and demonstrating to them how to build a Web site with WordPress. Maybe a few of you will be in the room. The last I heard, there were still a very small number of spaces available in the class.
Why is that important to today’s post? As part of the session, having a rock-solid Internet connection is extremely important. For that reason, an Ethernet connected will be provided to me. Only one minor problem, my laptop doesn’t have an Ethernet port. So I had to make sure I had a way to connect! I’ll link to the solution I purchased below and the links are affiliate links where I earn a very small commission.
There are a number of Ethernet adapters that plug into a USB port. To get the fastest connection, I wanted a USB 3.0 compatible adapter. Amazon makes their own which means the price is nice.
Sure, I could unplug one of the other devices for this session. While that provides a short-term solution, I could have similar issues in the future. Therefore I felt it was important to get a small USB hub to keep in my travel bag. Once again, I wanted to get something that supported USB 3.0.
Now that I have all my hardware in order for my presentation, I can finish polishing up the presentation itself. Trying to figure out how to get all of the information into a three-hour session is quite the challenge.
