There are 3 people in my house who use laptops.
In my room there is the router/modem.
Would it be better for me to always be hooked to the router via the ethernet cable or does it not matter. Does me using the internet wirelessly or through the ethernet cable affect the relative speed of the 2 other people in my house.
For sake of communal efficiency, what would be the best for the 2 people who are always on wifi, should I be on the wifi too or plug in via ethernet cable.

Yes it does. Your connection is 60Mbps and must be rationed amongst users.
Problem is most routers do not have a good QoS so the connection speed is never equally allocated. So this means if one person is downloading at 60Mbps then the other users will get extremely slow internet or none at all no matter if everyone is on wifi or using Ethernet cables.
So best you can do is upgrade to faster internet if people begin having connection problems because somebody decided that downloading hundreds of torrents at once on a shared internet connection was a good idea. On that note tell people to only download something one at a time especially torrents.
I've had this problem with my family who connects to the same router via wifi and we all just gave up and bought a 200mbps connection. Now everything is crack cocaine fast no matter how many users are on.
>60Mbps for 3 users
ouch. Make sure everyone has Chrome installed. That saves a fuckton of bandwidth used for youtube. 1080p VP9 streams on youtube are like ~2 Mbps and only download at 8-16 Mbps max.
I don't know, maybe it's 100mps - is there a way to check? I know it's either 60 or 100.
My mom just surfs the web reading articles for 3 hours max per day.
Brother streams youtube and whatnot.
I just use imageboards and watch 360p youtube clips.
While doing the test all 3 people in my house are online btw.
