TurboBeacon Network hardwired

I found a way to use the Turbo Beacon WIFI Network and still hardwire the Network to your other devices like your Apple TV, Roku.You can go get a Netgear Trek N300, set it up (including using USA) as your country, connect the Netgear Trek to the Turbo Beacon WIFI Network, then hard wire the Trek to your Apple TV 4 or Roku. Works PERFECTLY. And better streaming.
TOO !

The Turbo Beacon is good for watching Hulu, US Netflix, etc. The website states you can't hardwire the TB but I've had success going this route hardwiring it to the Trek instead.

How do you pay for Hulu. I heard that Vanila prepaid cards do not work anymore to pay for Hulu.

Through my US Paypal account, my PayPal account accepted my Canadian card surprisingly and I use it to pay.

Also there's "My Gift Card Supply" website you can buy them on.

You set the Trek button on the side to wireless, you DO NOT connect it to the router. You then go to your computer, tablet, etc enter the Password for the Trek Network that's written on the device it then goes into a screen listing the available wifi Networks, choose the Turbo Beacon Wifi Network enter the Password for it, click save and then I got options to set it up with an e-mail address and choosing US as my country (I'm in Canada). That's it.....and the other end of the device has two LAN ports which you plug into your Apple TV, Roku, etc.
