What it comes down to is Ethan is correct. AOL has absolutely /no/ way
to tell what kind of connection you're using to your local network
(whether it be Cat5, wifi, tin can or otherwise). His point is still
The only however to this situation would be if for some reason you have
a network configuration that allows for differences in routing/DNS/etc
between the wired network and the wireless one which would allow for the
differences you're seeing.
He wasn't being rude, he was trying to help you by telling you that your
thought of CAT5 vs Wifi could not be the cause of your issues yet you
were insistent he was incorrect.
Simply put, being accepting rather than argumentative on a
community-driven support list for a FOSS program is going to be much
more productive for everyone involved.
