The maximum speed for wireless is 54Mbps. Wired is 100Mbps. But since your internet will probably be 3.5Mbps that wont be an issue.

Wireless does struggle to maintain a contant download speed, sometimes it wll fluctuate. Also you may suffer from having the wireless lose its connection on the odd occasion.
