Depends on how far away from the wireless router you are and how many other devices connect to it. Technically, a good wireless connection should not be limited by it but by the internet connection. It will be a bit slower due to wireless overhead but should not be by much.

The laptop was two feet away from router and the only other was a desktop hookup through a ethernet cable. My speed on laptop was 1/3 of the desktop. both running G.

Wired will be better for a long time.. but its not that much worse if you can get it to stay stable.

Thanks for the reply. I assumed the wired would be better but the wireless being only a third of the wired threw me. I would have thought that it would be less but not that much.
