8. We use a wired connection for Netflix on our main television.

Our DSL is fast enough for a single video stream, but not always two.

It works because our router has a setup selection that gives priority to a specific wired ethernet port. Wifi shares whatever bandwidth is left.

If we are watching Netflix on our main television and I try, for example, to open a full screen YouTube video on my wifi connected laptop, the Netflix video gets priority and isn't affected at all, but the YouTube Video might suffer. The default settings of most routers would share the limited bandwidth evenly and both video streams would suffer.

You might check the setup menu of your own router to see if you can do this.
