Both would be perfect for Wi-Fi but for "Plus" motherboard you have to buy additional Wi-Fi adapter I would go for Plus and get USB 3.0 or PCI-E X1 Wi-Fi adapter for it :) 

However wired connection is always better than any Wi-Fi, it's not so difficult to set either Wi-Fi and wired internet connection :)

Mostly everything, but leaning into gaming. Planning on having i5 -4440 but possibly i5-4670k

I'd suggest the 4670K and either mobo will be good, with the Plus (costs less) you can pick up a decent USB adapter for wireless (which I myself prefer), the Pro is about $190 and the Plus $160 so may come out a few bucks ahead that way

Just get the Z87 PRO. There is a price difference of only $11. The WIFI adapter alone costs more than that.

I thought the price difference would be more, too, I was going to post both motherboards until I saw the prices.

Yeah! Egg's price a bit higher however NCIX US sells "Plro" board for 168$ after 20$ rebate :) 
And Egg sells "Plus" for 159$.
