Wired is faster in most cases. 100Mbps as apposed to wireless B/G at 54Mbps.

Depend's what games you play really. But you will be a bit more laggy with Wireless.

Like I posted in your other thread, for maximum performance you'll want wired.

Get a router and cable that supports 1000 Mbps, that's the best you can get.

I have a desktop that is wireless and one that is wired and generally i see no difference , but i havent gamed over the wireless yet , but if its general web browsing you should be alright just make sure you get a decent signal , i always have full signal on my desktop
If you do plan to game just get a cable and run that to the computer as it would in theory be better

i think its important to note here that a router (wired or not) that supports megabit networking does NOT mean that you will have megabit internet - your router can only distribute your connection as fast as your connection is in the first place i.e. if your on 512kps (like me ) and you buy a router that is advertised as being 100Mbits/s you will still have only 512kps connection (if that!! )

But if you have a LAN and play games or stream video over that, you'll see a huge difference with wired as opposed to wireless.
