Mining over WIFI vs. wired connection

Is it generally better to mine over a wired connection? I'm guessing you'd get faster speed and more reliability, but for the sake of less wires, is doing it over WIFI ok?

    Nope, unless your WIFI is a real crap and disconnect a lot ... you will not improve anything.
    My rig is wired while my desktop is over WIFI (130Mb/s connection on router), the ping is the same and the performance are the same :)

    So use cable or wifi, you will have same hashing power and share submission rate

    Yeah wifi is fine - most of mine are hardwired but I have two on the other side of the room that mining off of cheap panda usb wifi adapters hashing along just perfect

    If you are mining solo forget about wifi, otherwise its fine. My mining rig is connected via wifi and works just fine

    Mining hardly uses any data so as long as you're wireless connection is reliable it will be fine.
