Ethernet is wired network and wifi all sorts of wirless network.

Generally I would say wired networks are faster. But wifi nowadays is fast enough to fit everyones daily needs too.

Just speed alone isn't necessarily a pro for exclusive use of wired networks in business. Sometimes both types are used in combination. It depends on the type, the size of a business and many other conditions (eg security aspects) that determines the use of wired or wireless networks and such.

If I had to decide what to use, I would get the opinion of different experts.

Considering general level of development in case of wi-fi now, it's a bit hard to say which one is better, both types have their own pros and cons, and your choice in this case will depend on a certain type of company you have too Wi-fi is more comfortable in many aspects because it's not a wired connection like ethernet. Installing the last one is more complicated comparing with it and will cost more, also your gadgets should be always kept in the same room with special cables. But on the other hand the main advantage of serial to ethernet is its speed, it's much faster than wi-fi, for example with ethernet you can have 1 Gb/s for speed and in case of wi-fi it's not usually higher than 150 Mb/s.Ethernet provides also lower latency, no negative interference effects and better LAN connection too https://www.mothertech.co.uk/etherne...-the-benefits/. It's also better in case of security too which is really important for many companies because it's really more difficult to get an access to the physical cable and hacking wi-fi is easier, even if you use various types of protection for it. So in general wi-fi is better as an additional network for business, mostly as a bonus for your clients/partners like it was mentioned in previous responses here.
