    I have wireless and wired networking. If I plug the wireless computer into the wired ethernet, should i shut off the wireless? Will it cause any conflicts?

    I do just that.
    You may need to choose which network connection you want to use, depending on the setup.

    It should not case any conflict, however if they are different networks then you may want to think about the consequences (security wise) of bridging the networks, should that occur. (Joining 2 separate networks using your PC as the router)

    I regularly plug my laptop into the wired connection with the wireless NIC still active, it doesn't seem to have any issues. If it's a problem, you can just disable the wireless connection temporarily
