Would Airlink Have a Lower Latency Using the Host PC's Hotspot?

Honored Guest

I'm looking to minimize latency/stutters for Airlink. My PC is using a WiFi card due to the layout of my home.

I have a hypothesis that enabling the hotspot on my PC and using that as my Quest 3's network would result in the lowest possible latency. Potentially even better than a wired PC, as there are no additional network hops to&from the router in both directions.

Is this accurate in practice? I'm having a difficult time thinking of a way to prove this through testing.
