Exclamation Wifi and LAN

Hi there,

I have a wireless router at home. And it also has a LAN port. So, Im using LAN and wifi at the same time. But I wonder if I connect them both, do I going to get the double bandwidth or only one of them would be giving me bandwidth? Help me please..

No. I'm not 100% on which it will use, but it can only use one connection at a time. Since the ethernet connection (LAN) is technically faster, I'm guessing that is the one is will use.

Don't take life too seriously -- no one gets out alive. Plus, who wants to arrive to the hereafter in pristine condition wearing a suit and tie?
I want to slide in sideways, worn out, used up, hair a mess, clothes tattered, & screaming, "Whooo! What a ride!"

Typically it will just user the Ethernet connection and ignore the wireless. You can only use one connection at a time. I have heard of people using multiple connections before but you probably won't have any need for it.
