Default Wired connection through Wi-Fi router vs. direct wired connection to modem

Will there be any difference in Internet speeds, latency, etc.?

It depends on the router, and how fast your internet is. If you have say a 1gbps internet plan, but are using an old router, you probably won't pull 1gbps through it.

If you have stuff like QOS turned on that will also slow down the connection.

Depending on your connection, speed might be basically the same. Latency is probably not going to be much different. The biggest issue with wifi is that it's just not as reliable as wired due to interference

Interesting topic. Does a plain modem have the same attack surface as a router? When I'm not using the computer I disconnect it from the network but with a router that thing's on the internet 24/7 with an IP address. Back when I had a dumb DSL modem I just assumed without an active PPPoE connection there's no IP address to hit so while it too was on 24/7 you'd have to hit it lower on the stack and since it was pretty dumb its not like it has a ton of memory/code to work with.

Almost any consumer router will struggle with Gigabit (less than it) in some form. You need a pretty beefy processor you absorb bursty load for all packet sizes.


On a side note, I suspect most computers are probably too slow for Gigabit Internet too. Unless you're on one of the nice m2 SSDs that can hit that kind of bandwidth, you'll be in the situation where your Internet is faster than your storage.

All things being equal, you will never notice one hop in your line. After the packets leave your house, there are a lot more hops. The only thing that would cause an issue is if the wifi device has an issue itself. However, it's just going to be operating a switch port so there shouldn't be much processing.

1 Gb ~ 100 MB


Pretty much any drive made in the past 8 years should be able to do 100 MB/s (assuming defragged.) SSDs can do 200-300 MB/s depending on the interface and their cells.

That said, Gigabit internet is overkill for anyone but pirates... not worth the cost in my opinion.

Eh, I just felt like rolling like a Boss for the extra $10 a month for Gig service instead of 600MB service.
