Airtame AT-ETH adaptor. Airtame can be connected to your network via an Ethernet cable by using an adapter (Not included). This connection will generally give you a more reliable performance.
Why use Ethernet?
Stability: WiFi signals sometimes lose data because of external blockers and interference.
Transfer speed: The process of transmitting data wirelessly takes more time than using cables since signals need to be transferred in the air and, if there is a loss of data, retransmitted. Therefore it will always add a bit more latency when streaming than when using cables.
Note: It is worth mentioning that the Ethernet connection only helps with the connection from Airtame to the router and not from the router to the Computer.
Extra setup possibilities: This is especially relevant for organizations with multiple networks. Airtame can handle one wired connection and one WiFi connection. For example: Internal Network (Wired) + Guest network (WiFi) will allow users from both networks to stream to one device.
Minimize interference: All sort of devices uses WiFi and they all interfere with each other and can cause connections to be unstable. With Airtame hardwired the customer can disable the WiFi to minimize active WiFis on their network.
Security: Having a wired solution minimized the possibility of a security breach.
