Is your main computer at home connected to the internet wirelessly (i.e. home wifi network), or via a wired connection?

I have plenty of wireless devices, but I would lose my head if my main computer wasn't hard wired. I also keep a hard line corded phone on every level of my house in case the power goes out. I swear I'm not old! :)

I would prefer to wire it up, but my router is on the other side of the house from my computer, which sucks, especially because of all of those damn world holes in minecraft servers-grrrrrrrrr

Mailbag....If your wifi connection is secure you can use any device to do banking,shopping,it has to be password protected though.

Cable modem, Ethernet. Wireless router. Linux Ubuntu. Rock solid and very secure.

Wireless around the dormitory hall But i requested a wired connection since i have a specialized cord i built myself so that it can receive the bandwidth faster.

Main computer is wired, everything else is wireless

Mine is wired but we use AT&T so it's slow no matter what.

My main, or THE main computer? My main computer is wireless because it's in my room and it's my personal laptop. The desktop is wired.

06/27/12 5:31 pm

Wired, because wireless is 10 times slower. And I use my computer everyday.

Cat5 ports wires into every wall of the house, and a banging router signal when that won't do.

My main computer is a wired desktop. No way you could get me to use a significantly slower laptop with a tiny screen

I would, but I get within .5 Mbps of our top speed over wifi...

06/27/12 12:59 pm

Their are several advantages to using ethernet. Not only are you more secure, but you will never get the speeds you have available on ethernet on wifi.

Basically, any tech person will use ethernet.

Everything we have is wireless, laptops, cellphones, headphones, PS3.

06/27/12 12:06 pm

My PC desktop is wired; no sense in having a powerful machine if it's just going to get bogged down by a slow connection.

Everything else is wireless; laptop, iPad, TV, PS3, Xbox, Mac.

06/27/12 11:37 am

Wired. Way more secure than wireless where you are sending everything out for everyone to see. You just have to be patient and know what to look for. Aside from security issues you will never reach maximum speed with wifi unless you have the optimal setup. An empty room with just your router and PC.

Main and two others connected to the router, and the router connected to the cable modem with cat5e. Laptop, iPads, one of the printers, and Kindle all connect to the router wirelessly. The whole home wired/WiFi network connects to the Internet through cable.

True Xbox requires the speed and wired is lag resistant.

it's very fun to have a bunch of Apple stuff because EVERYTHING is wireless :)

-Xbox is wireless for me.

06/27/12 8:36 am

Phone, laptop, one pc are wireless. Xbox 360, printer, and old crappy PC are wired in.

06/27/12 8:33 am

Wired is faster, pc, Mac an ps3 are direct connected. iPod is wifi xD.

wifi with the laptop/'s cool so I can watch football and putter around on the computer during the 50,000 commercials

I have a wire running down my hall to my computer. It's quicker through a wire

06/27/12 6:12 am

Lol, if you asked me the same question in the 90's I would have said its connected through the phone line. =[

Usually Wi-Fi, but pretty frequently it's connected via Ethernet if I'm in the right location. 300+ mb/s vs. 1 gb/s.

I have an older computer, meaning no wi-fi 

06/27/12 5:56 am

I still use DSL actually for my main desktop. It's hooked up to a router so everything else is wireless

Home wifi network. It's handy to have

06/27/12 5:49 am

Wired. It's really the only way to get Internet/cable via the cable company here. I do have a wireless router though.
