I live in an apartment building and have been targeted by someone that is trying to hack into my small home network. I have a Cable Modem and a Linksys Wireless N Router. I have a desktop that is hard wired to the router and a laptop that connects wirelessly. But since I started having problems with someone trying to hack into my home network, I no longer connect wirelessly with my laptop, I connect it with a hard wire.
My question is, as long as I'm hard wiring both my desktop and my laptop to my router, should I use a wired router, instead of my wireless router. In other words, if I'm using hard wire connections, does a wired router give more security than a wireless router, or does it make no difference.
