Why are my wireless connection speeds slower than my wired connection speeds?
Posted by Chris Calvaresi on 20 Nov 2014 12:16 PM

There are many variables that can impact your speed when connected to the internet through a wireless network. Causes of WiFi interference include but are not limited to microwaves, static electricity, electric motors, halogen or fluorecesnt lights, cordless phones, other WiFi-enabled devices, mirrors or glass, metal objects, wall materials and thickness, distance to the router, wireless channel selection, multiple devices sharing the same channel, and foreign voltage on your network. These WiFi variables can add substantial delay to your connection which may result in speed degradation.

A hard-wired connection eliminates most, but not all, of these potential variables of a wireless network which results in a faster, more reliable network overall.
