R7000 - Gigabit Ethernet vs AC1900 WiF speed and reliable?

Hi Guys,

 

I wonder how speed and reliability comparison between Gigabit Ethernet cable vs. AC1900 WiFi (either USB or PCI adapter).

I want my computer to be able to WOL, thus I opt to use Gigabit Ethernet cable, but not sure if there is any USB/PCI AC1900 WiFi adapter can do the same, and it is, how is the speed/reliability compare to Gigabit Ethernet?

 

Thanks

AC1900 will never be as fast or reliable as Gigabit Ethernet.  The best I've seen is around 650 Mbps, but that's standing <5 feet away from the router.  I'll get around 300 or so Mbps from 10 to 15 feet away.
