I agree with Michael - wired Ethernet is very stable  compared with
In crowed places where everyone has a WiFi router - the WiFi will
experience random drops.
There is the inconvenient of cabling the place up - but the stability is
very much worth it - but I've using PowerLine adapters to ease my way

than WiFi - but they do tend to have a bandwidth cap.

Let´s agree to disagree.
