Fritz 15/16 users with playchess subscription recommendation for cloud matches to benefit from ponder.

Ethernet offers a more reliable connection than Wi-Fi. It’s just that simple.

If reducing latency as much as possible is your concern—for example, if you’re playing online games and need reaction time to be as quick as possible—you’re probably better off with a wired Ethernet connection.

* Dropped signals: Occasionally, Wi-Fi will lose the signal and have to reacquire it. This may not be a big deal for daily browsing or even streaming video (which gets buffered on the local device), because the re-acquisition happens quickly. But if you play online games, it can get pretty irritating.

* Higher latency: Increased interference can mean higher latency, which can be a problem for all the reasons we outlined in the previous section.

* Lowered speeds: More interference also means lower signal quality, which results in lower connection speeds.

In the end, Ethernet offers the advantages of better speed, lower latency, and more reliable connections. Wi-Fi offers the advantage of convenience and being good enough for most uses. So, you’ll just have to see if any of your devices fit into the categories where Ethernet will make a difference, and then decide whether it will make a big enough difference to run some cable.

Just discovered this today. This probably solves disconnection issues midgame.
