For all the reasons listed above. I have multiple devices to connect with. A wireless solution makes way more sense. I was just two devices 7 years ago. I had wire running through out my apartment. Well now I have a great wireless router and connect all my devices and do file sharing easily. It's a built in firewall, and provides 300mbps throughput. Dual band dual channel FTW!!! 10,000 sq/ft coverage!!!
