    i use wireless :cool:

    Edit: you should say network connection rather than internet connection, people might get a bit confused

    LAN (Wired, Wireless), Internet (Cable, Dial-up, Satellite, dsl, etc)

    Both. Wired for my main rig, and wireless (linksys) for laptop, but voted wired, as that is what I mostly use.

    Wireless because I have no choice since theres no phone line in my room for my DSL. I could drag a 50ft Ethernet cable across the house but meh.. My internet is pretty reliable though, rarely times out but does stutter for a second every few minutes while gaming :\
