    Ok sorry if this has been posted somewhere else, but I cannot find it...

    I am getting around 450-480 on my wireless network when I dump a game.. I was wondering if the speed is faster with a wired connection. I already have a hub and network cable run to that area of the house (for Tivo and Xbox 360) but dont have a usb wired connector for the wii so i have been using the wifi..

    Anyway, the question is, will my speed increase dramatically if I switch to a wired connection? Is there any change at all?

    Thanks for the help!

    overall that speed isn't so bad.

    i was running 200-300 on my wifi before i changed to a "wired" (datel usb extension to a home plug extender) connection. now i am going about 450-550.

    however i have since dropped the wifi dump and have gone to megaupload.com and rapidshare.com for all my iso's.

    i can get a game in about 35-45 minutes this way.

    much better in my opinion.

    I get the best results if my Wii is connected by wifi and my computer is connected by ethernet cable, but horrible speeds if they're both on wifi.

    wired wins any day the hbc used to take 1 min + for me to load now that i have it wired it takes 7-10 secs
     
  7. Wired allows a great, uninterrupted speed while WiFi, it has to send and receive through the air. o_o Who knows how much interference and OTHER computers are on it.

    I get around 485KB/Sec on wired, and a bit less with wireless (plus dropouts because my wireless is bad).

    It sound like your wireless is decent so It wouldn't give you much benefit in a wired connection.
