That's mostly because with wired networks all the packets are held
together and 'forced' to go to your other machines because they can't
escape out through the rubber tubing around the network cable.

With wireless, the packets are free to go wherever they please, and most
of the time they get lost. You can still access the internet because the
internet is wireless (something I learned from watching the IT crowd).

OK - My apologies, I've had some very long days, it's the end of the
week, and I'm in a very weird mood!  Wink

Thankfully I'd put my cuppa down before reading this post.
