This question already has an answer here:
I use wireless and wired networks at my university (which do connect to the Internet), both of which I connect to using my own computer. To access the Internet from these networks, students and staff must login to a portal and enter institutional credentials. For the sake of this question, I am assuming that both networks are routed through the same array of switches.
Here's my question: Is the wired network at my institution inherently more secure than the wireless network? Would I be less susceptible to eavesdropping by other clients within the network(s) if I used the wired network?
This question relates more to a fundamental question about the inherent vulnerabilities in wired and wireless network setups (respectively) than to the specific scenario described above.
If I am obviously misrepresenting something or if clarification is needed, please let me know.
