Don't waste you money on a networking setup. Instead, I totally think it would be best to fork out $400-600 on a Maltron keyboard which are the best designed keyboards out there. they help to minimize RSI - for me buying equipment which minimize RSI trumps a decent router or network card.

ya, the only reason i would say wired is

A:More secure than wireless
B:Cheaper than Wireless
C: Easier than Wireless
D:No BS involved, ie. interference, dropping signals, bad reception, loss of speed as you get farther away.

Looks like this comedian has been around a bit longer than you.

But seriously, you can do both wired and wireless with the same router. Using the Linksys WRT54G wireless router as an example, it has four ethernet ports on the back that you can connect to the computers in the same room, then you can use the wireless connection for your computer or laptop located in another room. That's what I do. I have a Linksys WRT54GS that the two computers downstairs connect to via ethernet cable, while the computer upstairs uses a wireless connection.

all my experience is with wired networks (all 2 days of it ), I figured it would be the same...

thanks for clarifying, now I know...

just a question though, aren't all wireless connections switches and not hubs...? it seems like it would be hard to share the same wireless bandwidth...

or do I have them "switched" around...? ...

Yea, I would be more concerned about those power lines running over your back yard, or those darn TV remotes, or those pesky microwave ovens....
