Sharing over a Router

I have a general question about sharing over a router, be it a printer, ps3, or a program that shares information with my phone (remote, air mouse, etc..) do I have to be connected wirelessly on my machine?

obviously my printer and phone would be connected wirelessly (the ps3 is also hardwired), but i dont have a wirless card in my machine, its hard wired to the router. the same router that everything is connected wirelessly to.

can i still share information between these devices?

yes - it doesn't matter if you are attached by wire or wireless - you are all still on the same network, and as such, should be able to see and share resources.

Excellent. I couldnt think of a reason why not, but everything always promotes "wireless" sharing. I just didn't know if it was wireless only.

Thank you. When I get some of those devices up and running I'll post back to confirm.
