The Benefits of Having a Wired Network

There’s no getting away from the convenience that wireless networks have provided for business owners and personal users. However, having a wired network comes with its own set of advantages and benefits. Read on to learn more about the benefits of having a wired network.


Wired networks are more secure than wireless networks.  It’s much more difficult for people nearby to steal bandwidth and it’s also much more difficult to hack into wired networks. It’s not just a matter of providing authority to access the network, but authorized users will need to be physically in the location of the cables and ports to access the network, which makes it more secure. It allows for networks to be as secure and closed as possible.  


Wired networks equate to faster speeds. You’ll experience faster internet speeds, faster file transfer speeds, and stronger connections. With wireless networks, there are many factors that can negatively impact the speed and strength of your connection, including router placement, walls, doors, and furniture. Wired networks are much more direct than wireless ones by ensuring that all devices connected to the network are directly connected with the cable. They take away many of the obstacles and vulnerabilities that your network will be susceptible to with wireless networks.

Set Up

In general, setting up a wired network is a more straightforward process. It usually involves plugging in an ethernet cable into a desktop computer, laptop, printer, or another device. It could also be the more convenient option depending on the needs of your network and configuration of your space. To set up and maintain a strong and secure wireless network, you’ll need to choose the right location, scan for available networks, and input security keys. If the area in which you live or work can’t get access to strong signals you’ll always experience slower speeds and even spotty connections.
