Wireless networking (WiFi) is popular, but it can have performance and reliability issues relating to distance, electromagnetic interference, even solar flares. Great for phones and tablets, it is a poor choice when performance matters.

Ethernet is always a superior solution for both performance and reliability versus WiFi.

A gigabit sethernet switch with eight or sixteen ports is the ideal solution.

TIP: use high quality Cat 6 ethernet cables @AMAZON for signal integrity.

MPG uses both Netgear and Cisco unmanaged* switches, with fanless silent operation.

* Unless you are a network adminstrator, a managed switch is not needed.
