I still use ethernet cable for internet.

Live long and suck it. =P





I use both. My household has 4 devices (PS4x2, Desktop PC, PSTV ) plugged into the ethernet port and 8 devices connected via wifi (4 smart phones, 3 Tablets, WiiU). Paying $240+ a month for a 4 room, Triple Play package (105Mbps/20) from Comcast takes a real hit to my wallet.

But I do enjoy my anime and gaming, so it's essential.

Who needs wifi when you got wires.


Try watching Netflix in bed (or on the toilet) with wires. It's a tad uncomfortable.


There's something wrong with having a tv in your bedroom? Just run your ethernet cord from one room to the room with the modem. Got the comcast tech to do it for me under the table.

No because my health is more important than some internet I can't use if I'm too weak or dead.

Skipping a meal won't kill you. I've done it during my broke-ass high school days. The online addiction then was real.

Depends on the kind of meal we're talking about here. Is this some run of the mill PBJ sammy or a delicious, medium well done cheeseburger with all the accouterments? Because I'd pass on that WiFi for the latter.

Again, if you didn't find out you could get one yourself, a $100 router (I'm MacOSX, so a Bluetooth-enabled Airport from the Apple Store served my Mac/iPad/PS3 needs for a one-time purchase) will cut down your monthly Comcast "tribute".
I also found out the modem they were socking me with for an extra $9 a month would have cost me $40 one-time at Best Buy. Do the math.

It's amazing what Comcast will tell you you need in a "package"--And if I didn't live in a valley and could get the big-city network affiliates over the air, I wouldn't need Comcast telling me I "have" to get their $99-150/mo. package just to get my TV shows "in full HDTV!"
(Back before they scrambled them and stuck me with another box, I plugged my cable into the TV's QAM-ready port and already got the area HDTV channels on a $6 basic-channels subscription. They're supposed to be free for the People, guys.)

They throttle you. Or is it a capacity? Mine goes to hell at 3 when the kids in town come home and slow everyone down...
