A Wi-Fi connection transmits data via wireless signals, while an Ethernet connection transmits data over cable.
No cables are needed to access a Wi-Fi connection, but cabling is recommended to get maximum speeds to your devices that are capable of having a hard wired cable.
Ethernet cabling to your desired products gives you the fastest speed, for example on a smart TV it will reduce any lagging issues giving you the fastest internet connection to your device.
Wi-Fi is extremely convenient for small, portable devices, but when performance is required, you cannot beat an Ethernet connection. Ethernet connections are several times faster than most Wi-Fi networks. An ethernet connection will give you a considerable boost in streaming quality.
Wi-Fi is subject to a lot more interference than a wired connection. The layout of your home, objects blocking the signal, interference from electrical devices or your neighbours’ Wi-Fi networks, all these things contribute to Wi-Fi being generally less reliable.
More interference also means lower signal quality, which results in lower connection speeds.
There are serval factors that can cause interference which cause intermittent problems, this is simply just annoying.
Ethernet offers a more reliable connection than Wi-Fi. It’s just that simple.
We don’t mean to come down too hard on Wi-Fi, as long as the incoming speed is sufficient its super convenient and perfectly serviceable for most of what we do on our networks.
For one thing, Wi-Fi is essential if you’ve got mobile devices, tablets or laptops.
Also, there are times you just can’t use Ethernet. Maybe it’s too difficult to run a permanent, out-of-the-way cable to the location you want. Or maybe your landlord won’t allow you to run cables the way you want to, either way we can come up with the best solution to suit your individual requirements for your home.
