Wi-Fi vs. Ethernet for Spontbox: Which Should You Use and Why?

Spontbox Recommends a Wired Ethernet Connection

Our customers have the option to configure their internet connection either by Wi-Fi or Ethernet. While it may be more convenient to connect your Spontbox to Wi-Fi, a fixed Ethernet connection offers more advantages for our plug and play device. Wi-Fi is susceptible to more interference than a wired connection due to countless environmental factors. Other wireless devices in your store can interfere with the signal, as well as nearby routers using the same channel. The physical environment can also cause problems, such as the box’s distance to the router. Also, depending on the quality of your router workload can affect the performance of the router and slow down its response time. The strength of your Wi-Fi network connection can fall and rise and your signal may be stronger in some places than others. The result is inconsistent performance. This is why we recommend you use an Ethernet connection for a more stable connection, faster speeds, and no wireless interference problems.
