Most only get a 0.768 megabit connection (DSL) or some max out at 2 to 5.0 megabit (cable) where as 802.11b is 11 megabit. Even with 2 users you can't top out the internet connection. Connect to the wifi router with 802.11g and that's 54 megabit whereas your internet connection is 10 or more times slower. The argument that wireless is too slow seems to fall apart here.
I'm going to be buying a Nintendo Wii when it comes out and was wondering which would be faster for internet/multiplayer, wireless (I hae an 802.11 b/g router hooked up) or wired ethernet through an ethernet to USB adaptor.
I had assumed the wired would be faster but saw some disagreement in other places. Thus I came to my favorite font of knowledge to enlighten me.
