Depends on the type of network you want build. Say you have an office building where the employees don't move around alot,. then an ethernet router is best. But if you have a sales flood with laptops always on the move then you need a wireless router. Or if you have both in your buliding then both would be needed. If your system is for your home,. then I would recommend an ethernet router. It isn't as easy to hack.
