Ethernet only is the way to go. 2-4 months since turning off wifi and have not had any issues connection. With Wifi enabled and ethernet connected had issues ever 2-3 days.
yeah, i have a new AP coming today from amazon that i'm going to use in client mode to get an ethernet connection to it. the wifi signal is strong enough that doing it that way should be fine, if i need to run an actual ethernet drop i'll cross that bridge when i come to it...but i think just the wireless uplink should be fine.
the next question will be: how do i make sure everything is dead inside the box before i open it to run the cable...?
