I have run wireless N 300megabits, and i'm 3 rooms away (0.5 meter thick brick and mortor), on a Netgear DGN2000, and a netgear wireless N PCIE, and i saw a ping difference of about 5-10ms.

I'll run tests later.

It's basically convenience, i would run a Ethernet, but if you don't want it wireless is fine if you have decent stuff. USB dongles don't count.

I am using cable internet in Turkey

From Turkey to Germany, these are my pingtest results

WIRELESS

WIRED

I had no troubles playing wirelessly but i will give wired a shot

However in terms of Benchmarking both are the same. Thats probably because i am 2 meters away from the router.

Kind of surprising considering how much I suck at fps games. Now I can't really blame it on lag, although it's probably just a crappy mouse. =P
EDIT: After looking at everyone's scores, it looks like mine's the best. woohoo.
Quick, somebody beat it!

Hardwired is the only way to go. Just finished installing 36 cat6 ports in my 3400sqft home netgear switch and router biggrin.gif

Wired all the way. Some new technological things sound good on paper, but in reality, its just terrible to use. I've tried playing Mario Kart 7 on my wifi, which I was sitting right next to for the best connection strength, and I still ended up somehow losing connection.
