WLAN on my laptop, wired for the 360.

I used my neighbour's unprotected 4Mb wlan connection for a good three months before getting my own internets when I first moved here.

i dont understand how people think wireless is slower than wired

wireless router = (Example) 54mb
Internet = (Highest availiable (Civilian) speed in uk )20mb

The wireless is capable of the same speeds as a wire!!!!

For the record i use wireless

Well wireless gives you lag spikes, and (at least in my house) when the person using the wired internet starts taking up the bandwidth by downloading or loading stuff, it slows down the internet for the wireless pc's

So I'm not crazy!! Yea see? Wireless has it's cons...Really bad cons...
#29
Yeah but so does wired. The main con being you need to have LOADS of ugly looking wires running all around your home... I've now seen so many [(EDIT) Yellow] ethernet cables it gives me nightmares!

Wireless, I'm catching the waves with an adapter from the modem downstairs.

I use a wire because I fear haxxzors and leaching neighbors.


If you have a password on your connection, no one can get to it. Unless they're some kind of uber hacker, which in that case you may have to ask yourself whether or not you have stolen government files.

breaking WPA encryption isn't that ard, WPA2 is harder but doable, although really noone is going to bother if there are other insecured networks available unless they really want something on your computer.

My desktop is wired, my bro's 360 is wireless, and two other computers are wireless.

Wired is so much faster.
For real.
#38
so many people saying wired is faster than wireless.

IMO not true. i have wired at uni and wireless at home and they are both equally fast

it depends on your network and how your router is set up, but generally if you are at home or whatever the computer wired directly to the modem or wired through the router will be faster than the wireless connection.

Is it possible to add another option to the poll? In which case, how? Cuz I need to add a both option for voters.
