The basic difference between a wired and a wireless network is self-explanatory. A wired network uses wires to communicate whereas a wireless network uses radio waves. Let us look at what are the other differences and how one technology gets an edge over the other.
- Wired networks are easy to set up and troubleshoot where wireless networks are comparatively difficult to set up, maintain, and troubleshoot.
- Wired networks make you immobile while wireless ones provide you with convenience of movement.
- Wired networks prove expensive when covering a large area because of the wiring and cabling while wireless networks do not involve this cost.
- Wired networks have better transmission speeds than wireless ones.
- In a wired network, a user does not have to share space with other users and thus gets dedicated speeds while in wireless networks, the same connection may be shared by multiple users.
