I'm building a new home and trying to decide whether I should install a CAT6A network supplemented with Wireless or if I should save some $ and just stick with wireless for everything. What are the real benefits in going with a wired network?
I have wireless and wired.
I like wired because it's faster and more secured then wireless.
I use a powerline adapter for networking my wired connections.
I've never had an issue with Bandwidth as it's just one PC and a Roku player on that "network". Video streams are fine, as is playing games.
I think the model I have allows for 50mb. I upgraded from an older version that only allowed 10mb on it.
No need to run cable when you can use the home's existing power lines.
Upstairs I have the power liner adapter terminating into a switch. Then the switch runs to my PC and Roku player.
Downstairs, the other power line adapter terminates into my router.
It's not cheap, I think the two adapters cost me around 100 bucks, the switch I had for years, but I think it ran around 40 bucks. But it beats fishing wires through walls and cutting holes.--
Is a person a failure for doing nothing? Or is he a failure for trying, and not succeeding at what he is attempting to do? What did you fail at today?.
