    I just got WiFi not long ago. I'm liking it. As long as it runs smoothly i'll be connecting my PS4 through it.

    You can easily see from the poll that majority of gamers prefer LAN and its easy to see why after I completed my wired connections the other day replacing various WLAN devices for LAN wired configurations, Ethernet is the father of high speed networking, WiFi is great if you're browsing the web, watching YouTube doing minimalist tasks for "time important" activities like gaming it seems nothing beats Mr Ethernet, hopefully one day that changes but the airwaves are getting more and more congested so it seems unlikely.

    I'm not knocking WiFi I just wish I didn't spend $400 on a Dual Band 802.11n router when it didn't make much of a difference to range and speed performance, WiFi is always mixed speeds up and down with wired its fairly consistent and ready to go all the time.

    Good to have best of both worlds for various uses.

    Exactly, I keep my laptops and smartphones on WiFi, the rest of the stuff in my house is over Ethernet...you also don't want to saturate your WiFi bandwidth, you have to remember if you are running a certain speed (54mbps, etc.) that speed is shared between all the devices connected to it, so if you have one laptop (or PS4) maxing out the bandwidth at any given point it will start to hinder the other devices connected to it.

    Situational, sure. But lets be honest, most people have had a bad experience and have let that shake their view on the issue. I have personally had to deal with atrocious community wifi at my college apartment that wasn't even good for the little things. But my home wifi has never been an issue.
