Our experience till date on measuring the power consumption of network for servers has shown that the power consumption of the network interface was dominated by the power consumption of CPU spent on networking tasks. Regarding the WiFi, we have no module available yet, but beyond the aforementioned issue, the power consumption of the wireless interface will highly depend on the quality of the signal strength.
