      Stabilizing Router Question

      Just a quick question on stabilizing the router. Does it help to stabilize the router if you have a computer connected to it via ethernet cable? Because my xbox 360 connects wireless to the router and as soon as it does the NM drops to 5.7db but when i do it with ethernet it stays at around 7.0db - 7.5db.

      It must just be a coincidence. There's no rational reason why using wireless networking rather than Ethernet (or vice versa) would do anything to the noise margin.

      Ah, you must be under 25, innit.

      "Vice versa" means "the other way round". So…
      using wireless networking rather than Ethernet (or vice versa)
      means…
      using wireless networking rather than Ethernet (or Ethernet rather than wireless networking)
