It doesn't, and this isn't happening.  As best I could tell from your
statement, *two years ago* it worked cat 5, and today it doesn't work
wifi, and now you think wifi is related?

Try it both cat 5 and wifi *on the same network* today, and I suspect
they will either work or not work in tandem.  If your wifi and cat 5
networks are materially different (different firewalls, etc.) then
that may be related -- but the technology used to carry the packets at
the physical layer is NOT.

I'm rather tired of hearing about it.
