My recommendation would be to purchase a Ethernet Cable adapter for your switch. When I play on wifi, smash is literally unplayable. However with a wired connection I’ve had zero issues yet.
^ this is the one I have
UGREEN Ethernet Adapter USB 2.0 to 10/100 Network RJ45 Lan Wired Adapter for Nintendo Switch, Wii, Wii U, Macbook, Chromebook, Windows 10, 8.1, Mac OS, Surface Pro, Linux ASIX AX88772 Chipset (Black) [link]
You first get a USB LAN Adapter to connects to the USB plug in your switch dock. Nintendo makes and official one, but you can use a generic like this one. From there you simply plug in a ethernet cable from your Switch to your Router.
These are the exact same network cables you use for computers, and come in a couple different types with cat5e and cat6 being most common. For the purposes of basic home networking, there's really no advantage to paying more for a cat6 cable. Cat5 cables are relatively cheap, even for longer runs. An already terminated 100ft/30m cables should be under $20USD on Amazon, and you may not need one that long.
Why not try this one? I have the Hori one, but it this one seems like it should work
That's the one I'm using currently. It was hard to find a good connection in the first week, but my GSP was/is fairly low with Wolf (700k), so that's sadly kinda to expect, especially in the early days. Yesterday I was trying to play Chrom with an GSP about 1,4mill. I still got some huge lags with some players, but overall it was really smooth. I guess when the more dedicated players stay, the connection will be overall smoother.
If it's just the ethernet port that's gone, you should try something like this before you go and buy a whole new motherboard
I use this.
It's a 100 Mb Ethernet adapter that will get the job done. They do have a gigabit version of this adapter, but the Switch currently doesn't support USB 3.0, and the only thing you would get out of it is faster download speeds for eShop games.
I used to have problems but changed my wifi and I can't remember the last time I disconnected.
I got an Ethernet adapter for ARMs which also eliminated my connection issues. I got this one
Go with Ethernet if it's an option, even if your staring right at your access point while playing. This game has a zero tolerance policy. You only get like 2 game ticks before the room boots you. I don't blame the game for choosing to be less forgiving and more accurate. It encouraged me to make some changes and everyone I play with wins (emotionally) because of it.
I got a recommendation for a off brand adaptor on Amazon from this sub reddit that works great. I went from a 6mbps(wifi) to a 39mbps(wired). The adapter was $10 with free shipping.
UGREEN Ethernet Adapter USB 2.0 to 10/100 Network RJ45 Lan Wired Adapter for Nintendo Switch, Wii, Wii U, Macbook, Chromebook, Windows 10, 8.1, Mac OS [link]
Consider grabbing a cheap usb to ethernet adapter and playing with a wired connection while docked.
Interference comes from everything. Line of sight with the access point helps a lot though. If Ethernet is an option then do it. You can grab an adapter off amazon for $10.00USD.
I got this one recently. Works great. I stopped dropping games in ARMS as soon as I started using it.
First you need something like this to provide the port, but then you need to figure out how to network it as it sounds like you want to connect to your laptop which is tethered to your phone. I'm sure it's doable, but I'm not certain on how to set that up.
I've not bothered with the official adapter, I happened to have one of these USB 2.0 Ethernet Adapters lying around and it worked quite happily. Decided to test it when I saw your post. Can offer picture as proof if required.
does it have a USB port?
I actually have yet to make the wifi work on mine, but I can get internet from this USB-ethernet dongle.
I just plugged mine in and it worked.
If they use the same adapter as the Wii and Wii U, you can get a third party adapter for less than $10.

In fact, any adapter with the ASIX AX88772 chipset should work if that's the case.
I woke up this morning, turned my Mi Box on and realized the Ethernet was no longer connected. I had the wifi toggled off too. I am experiencing the same issue as you. Once I rebooted, Ethernet was connected again.
This is the one I have:

tl;dr: Of how to get Splatoon running well easily but for money (which will also benefit every other internet enabled device in your home!).
Step 1) If you're using an ISP provided modem (or heaven forbid modem/router combo), take it and chuck it ~~in the garbage~~ into their returns center. Replace this with a new (new in box, not used), ISP compatible modem.
Step 2) If your router is from 2010 or early, it's time to upgrade. If you don't have one because it was in your Modem provided by an ISP. . . Well, you need to get one (also new!).
Step 2.5 (OPTIONAL BUT RECOMMENDED IF YOU POSSES THE TECHNICAL APTITUDE)) Install an alternate firmware (OpenWRT, DD-WRT, etc) to your router.
Step 3) Get an Ethernet Adaptor for your Wii U.
Step 4) Get a line of at least CAT-5e (just about any ethernet cable you'll find in store long enough to reach from your router to your Wii U (so long as that's less than 100 meters), and plug them into each other.
Step 5) Set your Wii U to run off the new shiny wired connection!
Step 6) If running your Wii U on a wired connection is not an option, nor is purchasing about $150~200 in network equipment viable. Send me a PM and I can help you make the best of it.
cat 5.e and I have lenovo yoga with a gpu and its able to run csgo fine when i have a decent connection(120+ fps), but im using this ethernet to usb adapter since my laptop doesn't have a ethernet port, do you think that's causing any problems.
Is it possible to use one of this along with regular Ethernet cable as Console cable.

Good is subjective, but the one that I have is this one: [link] and it works just fine.
You don't have to get the Nintendo one at least, most any USB adapter works with the switch.
I got this one and it works fine: [link]
I bought this one: [link] and my online matches are still so laggy...any suggestions? Have I just had terrible luck matching with people with bad connections?
> Because this laptop doesn't have an ethernet port
There's a peripheral for that, of course.
I bought this one last year and it works perfectly fine
Try picking up one of these!
I bought one of these: [link]
get this one. Only $11 and I have used it without issue.
You need a USB to Ethernet adapter in order to use an ethernet cable with the Switch. I recommend either this ethernet adapter (USB 2.0 version) or this ethernet adapter (USB 3.0 version).
If you want to find something cheaper, the general rule is that if it works with the Wii/Wii U, it will work with the Switch.
If your router/modem and Switch dock are in separate rooms, you need to run an ethernet cable between the router/modem and your dock.
Purchased this yesterday [link] arrived today and it works flawlessly for me
I've had 12/13 games perfect using this $9 USB Ethernet adapter even on mediocre DSL. Didn't have to set DMZ. Worked out of the box. [link]
Could be a problem with your router's wifi.
You might want to test with a USB to Ethernet adapter
This one works. Plugged it into dock then plugged cable in . No setup required for me
Confirmed working with this adapter.
This one is working for me.
Or like $10: [link]
you could try purchasing one of these
