What’s the difference between wired and WiFi connections?

Wired connections (plugging your devices directly into your router with an Ethernet cable) are fastest (up to 1 Gbps on the Linksys Velop router we supply as standard) and most reliable.

WiFi is slightly slower (up to 867 Mbps on the Linksys Velop), but is much more convenient because it’s a wireless connection, so you can move freely around your home or office.

We recommend using wired connections whenever possible, especially when downloading large files and gaming on PC/console.
