What’s the difference between connecting via WiFi or Ethernet for Video calling?

WiFi

WiFi allows an electronic device to exchange data wirelessly over a computer network. As the data is transmitted over the air, there are many factors that will cause an non-continuous connection and reduced signal strength.

Factors that contribute to decreased WiFi Strength:

  • The distance between your modem router and your WiFi enabled devices.
  • In locations where home and office buildings are close together, there may be wireless networks nearby that can conflict with your wireless connection.
  • The wireless speed on your modem router.
  • Obstacles and interference: Do not install or place your modem router and videophone near the following as these emit radio noise;
    • Refrigerators
    • Washing Machines and/or dryers
    • Metal cabinets
    • Large aquariums
    • Metallic-based, UV-tinted windows
    • Large/thick walls

Ethernet Connections

Ethernet connections involve connecting your modem router directly to your device such as your computer, laptop or video phone via an Ethernet Cable. Ethernet connections provide relatively high continuous data rates. As data does not need to travel through air the connection is more reliable and continuous.

For optimum video calling quality we recommend you connect the IRIS X via the Ethernet (cable) connection. Ethernet connections provide you with a consistent, stronger connection to the Internet capable of handling the bandwidth requirements of a Video call.

Earning Statement

RVPs and SVPs (including Circle of Champions members) earn annual income achieved by fewer than 1% of ACN IBOs. Their success stories and earnings are extraordinary and not typical. Earnings as an ACN IBO are based solely upon the successful sale of products to customers and their usage of those products. Individuals will incur expenses in operating their ACN business, such as the sign-up fee and renewal fee, as well as other possible operating expenses. As with any business, earnings and success at ACN are not guaranteed but depend primarily on the individual’s commitment, persistence and effort. Individuals may not earn income and may lose money as an IBO.
