Anom I still detest wireless with a passion
I still prefer a few of the older standards (Firewire, 802.3, etc).
I'm not sure how ethernet in general (802.3) is an older standard... at any rate. i personally go for best tool for the job so my new computer is in fact wireless... yes my transfer speed over lan isn't as great as it could be but other than that... it would take 3 or 4 times the speed of the outside connection to come close to topping my max transfer speed out... and i don't get to deal with pulling cable everywhere (the router is in a different room quite far away).
Anyways. Either linksys (wireless) or intel (wired) are great cards as i mentioned, either of those won't treat you wrong...
