    Hi, I know that you may be slower if your wireless, but is the speed of being connected WITH a wire to a WIRELESS router, the same as being connected WITH a wire to a WIRED router? Thanks in advance.

    :confused: lol....that was just worded weird I guess....no worries though, I've confused many a person in my posts :p Anyway, if I understand your question correctly, no you shouldn't lose any speed just because you have a wireless router between you and your modem. (If, for example, your set up is like this: cable line ----> cable modem -----> wireless router ------> computer.) That's the set up I have anyway, and have noticed no loss of bandwidth. However, my wireless laptop DOES lose bandwidth, due to the fact that it's not physically connected to the router. (Obviously, with any wireless you'll lose bandwidth). Hope this helped!

    The wired ports are wired ports. The wireless section is independent, as far as speed issues are concerned.
