I use both. Ethernet when I'm doing real work (personal work as well). Wifi when I'm just using a tablet or laptop for entertainment or browsing. I find Wifi to be too slow for my productivity needs.

Both. Hard wired when and where I can, WiFi for the rest.

Ethernet for streaming. All of my TVs and streaming boxes are wired. Ethernet when working on the desktop. WiFi for general browsing and shopping on my tablet and phone.

Both my 4K TVs are hard wired, my main laptop is 5G WIFI all other devices including two 1080 TVs are using 2.4G wifi.

And no option for both in the poll so I did not vote. And right now as I'm typing this I am using both; hard wired TV is on and I'm watching amazon prime while I type on a wireless laptop.

I use Wifi...

I dont have a cable to hook my modem directory to computer but I suppose I could...


One thing I dont like about wireless is if the signal is LOW your connection will be slower at least thats what I have experienced over the years......
