I am currently using it as a media server, file backup server and Alexa.
What's your typical CPU utilization with all that running in the background? My guess is you're running low on RAM and swapping, or just getting lag due to an overworked CPU.
Would an ethernet connection provide a better solution? Is there another work around?
WiFi does have more system overhead than Ethernet, but Ethernet is shared with the USB ports, so ... ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ ... (heavy access to anything on USB could impact Ethernet performance). If you're doing a lot of reading or writing to USB storage then WiFi may be best, but there are so many things that affect WiFi it's hard to predict. Try it both ways and see which works best for you.
My mind is like a browser. 27 tabs are open, 9 aren't responding,
lots of pop-ups...and where is that annoying music coming from?
