I have a problem setting DNS and need to forget the network to set up from the start. I know it’s the Fire because all other capable systems (TVs, other boxes) plays Youtube at 4K with identical wifi. Hi.. I’m having the same issue but I didn’t understand the second part of your question… ‘When I use a regular usb hard drive in the same way it works but not with the external usb drive.” what did you mean by that? The Smays adapter connects via micro USB and not full-sized USB, like the Ugreen adapter does. :-(, Found these two OTG cables from aliexpress: The Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K doesn’t officially support connecting anything to it except Amazon’s Fire TV Ethernet Adapter, but, using an inexpensive OTG cable it’s possible to use USB peripherals, such as keyboards and wired gamepads, as well as external USB drives. Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The otg cable shows the jump drive but the hub does not show up when I put a usb drive in and the wired internet does not work. Do you know of any restrictions or differences surrounding OTG support for the new Fire TV Stick 4K? My only concern it dramatically slows down the read/write speed of my Class 4 thumbdrive by 80%. Instead the Ethernet is just found immediately and then the changing of DNS through “configure network” isn’t working. Any advice?

The Smays is great for the Fire TV Cube, because you don’t need to pass power through the adapter, but for the Fire TV Stick 4K, I think it’s best to use a regular OTG cable, the Ugreen adapter, and the stock power adapter. Eureka! I bought this hub and a otg cable for my firestick 4k the hub is on everything is connected as it should be. In the comments on my other post some people said the Ugreen Ethernet adapter did not work with their Fire TV stick. Works without a hitch and I get about 380 Mb/s with it versus about 95 Mb/s with a 10/100 ethernet adapter. In terms of write speed, it only write at 1mb/sec & below but when using standard micro usb otg without hub, it will write the at 5mb to 6mb per second consistently and it will load a 4k video file fast without buffering. Works well. Thanks for this. So, while the Smays unit will power a Firestick 4k, I don’t think the power pass-through circuit is robust enough to consistently deliver the expected power to the stick. First ES Explorer is fullly supported by firestick 4k, I use it all the time and with no issues. Is this compatible with the 4k firestick? Unless your goal is to get maximum speed on large file transfers, the 2.0 Ugreen device would be totally adequate and save you money. The support for USB drives, in particular, isn’t as thorough as the Fire TV Cube, which does officially support external storage, but it’s much better than the Fire TV 3 (pendant), which the Fire TV Stick 4K has replaced, so it’s a step in the right direction. Just Google how to do it using Windows Powershell. They combine the functions of OTG, USB hub and power supply together. You don’t need third party software to format a large drive to FAT32 in Windows 10. Just ordered one and will see if it fits the 4k stick. Hi Fayyaz, I was able to get my 4k fire stick to recognize my USB drive. But I get that even if it works, it’s probably more advisable to power the Stick directly instead of through the adapter. Speed showing 25-37mbps but refuses to go beyond 2560×1440. I tested a portable 500GB USB hard drive and it didn’t even spin up. would like to set mine that way? I have a Ugreen adapter and just got a wireless mini keyboard(i8 2.4GHz) with a OTG cable trying to connect both together but when I do the lan does not power up. I’m (obviously) running of an ethernet connection with this device (not wifi). Get an email anytime a new article is published.No Spam EVER and Cancel Anytime. I reset to factory and took updates, Bought otg cable So triple the speed there… does you nothing. S. Hi, If you want to add Ethernet to the Fire TV Stick 4K but also want to connect other USB devices, don’t buy Amazon’s Ethernet adapter because it does not pass OTG connections through its micro USB port. I can download movies/tv shows directly onto the firestick and then use ES Explorer to move them directly to the memory stick. How to add the USB hub to a FireTV stick: The only downside is it’s a bit of a mess with all the cables. It’s foolish to try and do more than was intended by a device, engineers work hard to ensure it handles the load it was given and not more. I can download movies/tv shows directly onto the firestick and then use ES Explorer to move them directly to the memory stick. I assume you also do not get the “System Info – Storage” page (last diagram) in the above write up listing the USB drive? https://www.ebay.com/itm/4-Port-Micro-USB-OTG-Hub-Power-Charging-Adapter-Cable-For-Android-PC-Tablet/173354588994. Thanks for the suggestion. I get the “Access denied” message, where it works fine with the same USB drive on the 2.gen Fire TV stick or the Total Commander app… Technology swimming against the current as it were. How can that product be obtained? Firmware? haven’t tried. If you know of a way, feel free to comment below. I guess so cause people on the Smays product page on Amazon say it works great with those devices. I have a bug on my fire tv 2 where I can’t forget the network as the option isn’t there. The description of the UGREEN Ethernet Adapter with a built-in USB hub mentions nothing about the pictured micro USB adapter shown in the picture included with this article. I can then play the movie/show directly from the memory stick using MX Player. To add to the frustration, with strong broadband speed (100+) and strong wi-fi signal (granted not 802.11ac), somehow cannot get Youtube to play @ 4k! ), also not seeing any USB (FAT32) drive. I’m assuming the Fire Stick 4K will have the same problem. Thank you. I haven’t verified that the USB 3.0 version works, so I didn’t want to mention it in case it doesn’t work with Fire TV devices. Along with the new 3rd generation Fire TV, Amazon has released their own official Fire TV Ethernet Adapter that also works with the 2nd generation Fire TV Stick.It’s a fine adapter if all you want is to add Ethernet capabilities to your Fire TV or Fire TV Stick, but most people will be much better off buying this UGREEN Ethernet Adapter w/ USB Hub along with an OTG Adapter.
