2 Basic Wired-Wireless Connection Questions

I have a B-type wireless router with 4 additional ports.  My typical
wireless connection is:

o  Wireless Signal Strength:  "Excellent"

o  Network Connection Speed: 11 Mbps

o  Internet Download Speed: 2,600-2,800 mbps

(1) Is there any reason to connect to my network by a CAT-5 cable, instead
of the wireless connection, when I am working in the room with the router?

(2) Is there any reason to connect to my network by both a CAT-5 cable and
the wireless connection when I am working in the room with the router?

TIA!

Re: 2 Basic Wired-Wireless Connection Questions
(1) no and (2) no.

The wireless speed to your router is faster than the speed you have to the
internet - so it makes no difference.

If, on the other hand - you were doing file sharing, backups, etc over your
home network to other computers on your home network - then the wired speed
would be much much faster than the wireless speed..
