    You said there were “spits and starts”-delays, in WiFi, 4G, 5G, as opposed to “hardwired” ? — how would this affect, my Mac’s performance ?

    This would just affect the performance of the network, in other words: your internet connection.

    Connecting directly to your modem or router via a hardwired connection (physical network cable) would eliminate any connection drops associated with wireless traffic. Wireless connectivity issues can occur for a number of reasons, including if you are too far from the router, dead spots in the home, or radio interference.

    Is a “connection drop”, the same, as “spits and starts” (i.e., TEMPORARY delays, in the data-stream, by way, of, say, repeating a block of data) ?

    Yes, for example if you have a microwave between your cell phone and your access point, your connection will suffer until the microwave turns off. Wireless interference / fits and starts / connection drops are all influenced by variables such as other wireless devices, thickness of walls and distance from your access point. A hardwired connection is not susceptible to any of these variables.

    My WiFi, is reading, as 130T, as opposed to the 100T normally reported as being my hardwired-speed — I don’t know, what these mean .
