Gaming Multiplayer - Top Quality WiFi vs LAN

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi guys

i want to buy the top of the wifi card in the market .... the Asus PCE AC88, to use together my Netgear D7000 in the same room ( no walls behind ) with 5Ghz connection and AC protocol.

I want to know if this solution can give me the same connection quality compared to the cable, a solid granitic and stable connection with the SAME PING.

This is possible ? Or the ping will be highter ?

It will be a negligible amount higher if you are close with no obstructions and no other interference.

"no other interference" what means ? redface.gif

That means wifi interference. Like your neighbor has his router cranked up on the same channel you are usimg. Or you don't have some other electrical interference.Most of the time you can just scan the channels and luck out with an empty non overlapping channel and be good. Unless you live in some crowded apt complex.

You can use the laptop as a network bridge? If your laptop gets a good signal and speeds.

If you want the best of the best connection, go cable, good quality cable.
Wifi can work fine and will most likely work just as well in 99% of the cases. But wireless is always far more subject to interference and so if you really want issue free connection for gaming, then cable is the way to go.

Cable + wifi, even better.

ok but if my router's signal is strong and the receiver is good ..... the classic interferences should not be unfluent ?
My thought is to accumulate high positive gap to get the connection immune to interference effects.

just curious.... why?

You're in the same room as your router and want to put a £100 pci-e wifi card in to a machine in the hope to get performance as good as a £5 cable? Of course in theory, yes 2.1 Gbps is better than 1 Gbps but since that's not your outgoing line speed it won't affect your ping. Maybe by a few micro seconds in ideal circumstances but by I'd have thought it'll be worse far more often than not.

Purely anecdotal (sample of 1!) but I stood next to my AC router (Netgear R7000) with my AC enabled laptop and my router only connected to my device at 600 Mbps when in theory it should have got to 1.8 Gbps.
