Home network set up: Incoming line from the world goes to an Internet switch with local Wi-Fi. One of the switch lines runs to a second switch at the other end of the house. Most of our devices have hardwired connection. I really don't want Netflix on the AppleTV to fight for bandwidth with my laptop and my wife's iPad.
I also have a Mac Pro that is the center of my computing life. The Mac Pro has its Wi-Fi switched off.
I've told my iPhone and Mac to sync wirelessly. This isn't happening.
Do both computer and iOS device have to be using Wi-Fi for wireless sync to happen?
Is Apple networking smart enough to do the right thing if I have my desktop with two live ethernet connections. (This was a good way to get in trouble with just wired networks. Spanning tree and all that to shut down the extra link.)
