Hello I don't quite understand what you are saying .. But if the question is simply to know if it is better to be connected by Ethernet, or by wifi It depends, in general, the internet can be faster, wired But it may not be very noticeable, everything will depend on the Ethernet and wifi cards of the router / internet provider's speed The wifi is much more convenient, no cable required, so you can have the computer, quite far from the router. If it works well like that, don't worry

The Internet comes into your home from outside. An Internet Service Provider (ISP) wires up a neighborhood or building for their service. When you purchase their service, their tech comes over and connects a router to the cable that brings the service inside your residence. You can not connect your PC directly to their service; instead, you have to connect through their router. That is what you did previously -- you connected using a networking cable.
An AX router is no different -- it just operates WiFi in both the 2.4 and 5GHz ranges, creating more available channels. If you want to connect through Ethernet (known as "wired") you still have to run a network cable from your PC to a port on the router.
If you are connecting via WiFi, then of course, you do NOT run a cable -- and that is probably what the tech means. But, understand that WiFi speeds are a LOT lower than Wired speeds. So, if you want the speed back that you got with the old router, then you need to reconnect using a networking cable -- just like you did with the old router.
