Ethernet is the most reliable way to create a landline internet connection. It offers both speed and reliability. Wireless connections are great and convenient when they are up and running but they have more downtime and get into more trouble too.

There just is no beating the speed or stability of ethernet that's wired, an ethernet connection that's on a flat Cat 7 Ethernet cable can run super high in speed. It can also be tucked under the carpet to be out of sight. While wireless can't be seen either, it has interference and can easily get congested in traffic if too many people in the area are online. Many people assure wireless is the way to go but it's just not so.

A Local Area Network - a LAN - is set up to allow communication between different computers and devices. They need to be connected if they want to talk to each other and access the internet. If you have a network adapter that's connected to a LAN, Windows automatically creates and configures the connection when you start your computer, so you do not need to create one manually.

The port on the network may be called an Ethernet port or a LAN port, which suggests the answer to this question. But Ethernet is an underlying technology for building the connection - a protocol - using a bus and star, while a LAN is potentially a more extensive network allowing the links within it and may use topologies such as a star, ring, mesh, bus, and others.
