Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If you can go wired you should. But if you have to go wireless then you should check out this article on the downfalls of wifi.

It comes down to A hard wired connection will always be better than an invisible interference prone connection! Don’t get me wrong I have Wi-Fi in the crib but when I REALLY need to be reliable ETHERNET all the way!

No problem you can choose any one of them but no reliability with wireless n/w than the wired. if wired is possible just go for wire because to maintain Wi-Fi in/w u need a experienced technician compare with wired.

ADI Cool how about abit more information about your current set up – There are heaps of considerations but a basic intro into your current infrastucture would help.

    The above is right, and use wireless to "compliment" your existing network, but you should always have a wired connection available for backup.

    wired and wlan i have found a few problems with installing wlan in office buildings and the most common problem is glass if there is alot of glass it kills the signal of a wlan what happens is the radio waves bounce off the glass and sometimes also struggling to penatrate through reinforced walls this will happen because of the size of the wave being transmitted. Causing weak signal strength therfore lagging network connection.So if you can go with wired do so. The only thing you really have to worry about with wired is runnning the cable with power which should not be done but the techies who install the cable should know that. I really hope this helps :)

    Going wired will help people from possibly jumping on your wireless network. Wired is more stable in my opinion. The drawback to wireless is the range can be effected by the building and the environment. You may need signal boosters and other points to extend the range. This means more money as well.
