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.
