Hardwire surface pro3


#1

I am using a surface pro3 to run channels. How much better is it if I hardwire it? Currently modem/router is in laundry room so would have to either leave it in there or drill hole in living room floor to move it.

My router is a Netgear 6300 so it is getting a little old. Thought about just purchasing new/better router as well.

Thoughts.

Depends on how much bandwidth your WiFi is able to support. HD TV requires between 10-20Mbps sustained. If you want to use tuner sharing, double that. Basically, you’ll need very solid WiFi to make it a good experience. Hardwired basically ensures a good experience.
