Applies to: Nintendo Switch
Your Nintendo Switch console can connect to the internet via Wi-Fi or via a wired connection. Each type of connection requires different conditions, which are listed below.
You can only choose to use a wired connection when the console is in TV mode.
It can be helpful to set up both a wired and wireless connection.
If you're just using a wired connection, your Nintendo Switch console will become unable to connect to the internet as soon as you remove it from the dock. However, if you also set up a wireless connection, your Nintendo Switch console will connect to Wi-Fi as soon as the wired connection is lost.
