Gotta love a cheap Amazon Add On; always handy; fab spot, thanks for posting Jack_Ford and welcome to HUKD
Awesome thanks
Is this the latest cables
Or is it cat 6
Copper/Aluminium aka CCA, although possibly not detrimental over relatively short 3 metre length.

No problem, long time user, first time poster
Definitely CCA so NOT Cat5e. Naughty Amazon.
In the world of wireless is this a step back?

About 10years back I had cat 6 going all the way around my house... For transferring large media files is great.. but installing it is a mission. Still got the wire somewhere is about 20m long maybe more

Lurking is good, posting is even better (and braver)
Also available in blue, look for similar items.
Suggest not worth compromising network on CCA rubbish when pure copper 3m is readily available in various colours at £1.59 dlvd from seller with credible history without having to spend £20, example ebay.co.uk/itm…050

No because Wireless connections can be compromised. And can fail, be interfered with if you have multiple connections.
Physical cable is always private. Is only subject to the maximum cable length.

If an agency wanted to monitor you they can one way or the other.

Privacy is a mirage for the average user. Backdoor vulnerabilities will always exist whether Meltdown or something else undisclosed.

Of course, but the differences between a local wireless setup and cable are clear
Lol. Can't believe a discussion is going on whether cabled network is better than wireless. Of course it is and much cheaper too.

Wireless is better if you need portability or cabling is difficult. To get gigabit LAN speeds on a wireless network you need a router costing more than £100.

NO - always use wired if you can - wireless has a habit of being good one day, bad the next....

I suppose that was your ticket to enter the conversation.

Wireless 11AC routers (£35) can run just as fast from a practical aspect unless your transferring major size files. bottle neck is usually writing speed to disk.

Security can be an issue but the person has to be in close range. Run Arch Linux, like me, and security won't be a major issue, relatively speaking.

I use mobile for almost everything. Not going plug an ethernet into it.

Yes ethernet does have its role but it's an ever dwindling one. For example. I have a smart TV connected by ethernet into a htpc which controls the VPN for the TV. Also I have another computer sitting right next to the router so it is wired to it.

You must not have it set up optimally.
Maybe get the router DHCP to give the device a dedicated local wireless IP. And set the manual IP on the device.
Had to do that with Samsung TV ... Their auto setting was not reliable. Had to even do it when wired in to HTPC with the latter acting as a bridge giving it a fixed local IP for VPN purposes. HTPC then uses Wireless 11AC to router.

I agree it is wrong. Physical wire can be hacked but usually at the level of the router firewall.

Most of these mega million dollar companies whose big servers are hacked usually for bitcoins mostly use wired ethernet connections. The ethernet does not prevent the hacking.
The hackers are miles away so cannot really directly hack any wireless connectivity by spoofing or the like.

The media type in wired applications is only really an issue where physical security is an issue. As an example, military installations use fibre instead of copper where wiretapping may be an issue. It can still be compromised though by MITM attacks.

Wireless is trusted by the military and carries various accreditations, such as FIPS140-2, depending on the authentication and encryption methods used. This means the US DoD approve its use for protectively marked data.

Of course having an ethernet network does not prevent hacking!
All networks (including wireless ones are connected to the Internet by a router, routers can be accessed from the internet, at it's simplest form scanned, everyone knows that.
But a wireless network can be probed by someone simply sitting in a car near it.
That isn't possible with a wired network. They have to physically connected to it.
Do you remember war driving with a pringles can and the many versions of linux specifically designed for hacking wireless networks (it looks like Kali is the flavour of the moment)

Yeah all that for the common-level hacker will only work with a poorly configured wireless setup.
A good configured setup using certificates and the like is relatively strong as 'the cat' mentioned above regarding military level security.
But my view is no system is unbreakable...it's all about how much dedication and skill the hacker has for your secrets... Ethernet does not add any extra level of security rather a poorly configured wireless setup will reduce your privacy.
