Hello Daniweb Community,
I have recently been thinking about switching from a Wi-Fi connection to a direct connection over ethernet, however when I tried an ethernet connection from my router to my PS4, I calculated the average download speed after about 5 Wi-Fi connection tests and 5 ethernet connection tests and it averaged around the same. So there was no major difference, so what benefits would I have with a ethernet connection? I use my PS4 to listen to Spotify and sometimes it will drop or lag a bit, as well as when I have more than one person on my network it will lag a little more.
So I was planning on getting a long enough cable to reach my lounge and plug it into a network switch then into my PS3, PS4 and Foxtel. However I don't want to go through all this trouble if there is no major difference.
So what are the benefits if the download speed if averaging around the same, the only thing that changed a decent bit was the upload speed.
