Tech question

OK, since everyone on my friends list is smarter than me, I'm going to throw this out here.

I have a wireless G router hooked up to my cable modem. The wall connection, modem and router are on one side of the room. My new Alien is on the complete other side.

So, I ordered a PCI slot wireless card for the Alien, and will install it as soon as it comes in (today or tomorrow, I am betting.)

Here is the question - do I lose significant amounts of speed using wireless instead of using a direct ethernet cable? Snaking that much cable around the house will be muy complicated, not to mention a potential eyesore.

What do you think?
