Im a bit confused. Youre putting a fire stick on the router?

Why wouldnt you connect your fire stick to your TV and connect to the router via wifi?

What am I missing?

Wait...

Your router has ethernet ports. The firestick uses HDMI. Where do the USB ports come in?

A USB hub is most appropriate here.

You don't need a USB port to connect a Firestick to a TV.

If you're using a USB port for power, why not just use the provided wall adapter instead?
