    It depends on the signal connection, but I think it's safe to say that a wired connection is always better than wireless for gaming, just because if the signal accidently drops for a second, you can be dropped from the game. I had a shitty wireless connection in my house for a few months, and when I played WoW during group things I'd constantly get disconnected. It sucks. Bought a new router and it was fine.

    Cliffs: Wired > Wireless but if you're wireless signal is strong/good enough you shouldn't notice a difference.

    I've had mine for nearly 2 years and never had problems out of it. It depends on speed of you network, really.

    My wireless adapter is a floor below my router and i've never had problems in gaming or streaming netflix, even with HD movies.

    wireless is good for surfing the net on a laptop, otherwise wire up as much as you can

    if you can go wired then go wired but if wireless is the only option or is more convenient then go wireless. ive had no problems playing online wirelessly.

    You need to log into your neighbor's router and change the range it's broadcasting on. By default, most routers all use the same, which will end up giving you a shitty signal. Had to do this on my buddy's router since we couldn't play shit for games online. Changed the range up or down a bit, and problem was solved.
