7 Hot PS4 Wireless Adapters for Wi-Fi Networks
You need a PS4 wireless adaptor but you’re not sure where to look or which ones will work best for what you need. Don’t worry, we’re here to help. Here are the 7 best PS4 wireless adapters on the market right now.
The Linksys WGA54AG wireless adapter connects to the ethernet port on your PS4 and supports both 802.11a and 802.11b/g wi-fi networks. The good thing about this particular PS4 wireless adapter is that it will automatically switch the Wi-Fi network to find the best signal. For those that only have one signal in their home, this won’t be an issue, but if you’re in a place with free Wi-Fi or multiple Wi-Fi signals, it will work wonders for your gaming.
This Linksys wireless adapter works on the 802.11g Wi-Fi network and has WEP/WPA encryption. However, it acts as a bridge between your PS4 and your wireless network. It also offers the power through ethernet adapter so you don’t have that extra plug filling up space on your surge protector. It’s similar to the Linksys WGA54AG above.
Linksys AE2500 N600
This Linksys Wi-Fi adapter offers a dual band network for both 2.4GHz and 5GHz on the 802.11n network. It is a simple plug and play model and will easily connect to any type of modem or router that you have. It’s also a lower priced option for those gamers who are not wanting to spend too much on a PS4 wireless adapter.
The Belkin F5D7330 wireless adapter works great on your PS4 and you can connect it either through the ethernet port or through a USB port. This adapter only uses the 802.11g Wi-Fi network, so it won’t detect any other ones available to find the best signal.
The Netgear N600 is a simple plug and play adapter that will offer you a dual band Wi-Fi connection on the 802.11g network. It works with faster Wi-Fi speeds up to 600 Mbps and is compatible with any router or modem.
ASUS USB-AC68 AC1900
This little monster offers a great dual band USB Wi-Fi adapter that runs on the 802.11ac and worked with speeds from 600 Mbps to 1300 Mbps. It has a larger antenna design that helps to optimize the reception – plus it looks like an alienesque piece of gaming equipment.
ASUS Dual-Band Wireless AC1300
This ASUS Wi-Fi adapter offers the 802.11ac network with a dual-band that will give you 2.4GHz or 5GHz for up to 867 Mbps. It has a USB connection and has its own cradle making it easy to set up in areas that you have to search the room for the best signal strength.
Of course, there are tons of wireless adapters out there on the market. Depending on what your budget is for one, you can spend up to \$300 or more on one or you can spend as little as \$15. However, I highly recommend that you take the time to research a bit on what upload and download speeds you have on your Wi-Fi connection, the distance your PS4 is from the router as well as the reviews on each of the different PS4 wireless adapters that you’re looking at.
