You need both in your situation. Back in the old days you could use a
single cross over cable between two NIC's called (cheaper net) however
with the wireless technology there are no wires to cross over and as
far as I know of, no settings on the wireless NIC to do so. I'm afraid
you will need both NIC's and a wireless receiver. By the way I am
about thirty feet from the router, going through about four walls. My
performance is not as good as I had hoped with the 11Mb NIC.
