What is the difference between a WiFi and Ethernet connection?

A WiFi connection enables users to access the Internet through a wireless connection to a WiFi router – no cables are needed since a radio signal is used. An Ethernet connection uses wired ethernet cable to connect devices to the Internet.

What is the difference between a WiFi and Ethernet connection in terms of speed?

While a number of variables determine actual speed of a WiFi connection and an Ethernet connection, Ethernet is almost always faster than WiFi. The fastest Ethernet speeds top out at 10 Gbps or higher, while the fastest WiFi speeds theoretically max out at 6.9 Gbps, though actual speeds are much slower – usually less than 1 Gbps.
