Windows 7: Wired vs Wireless network, is wireless safe.

Wired vs Wireless network, is wireless safe.

I generally don't have a need to network computers together. In fact if I do network in my home it will be for only one purpose and would prefer to have the network down 99.99% of the time.

I can run the lines needed to connect these two computers but wireless would be easier to get going.

I am just wondering if wireless is secure enough.

If I do connect two computers together I would want to set it up so I have a link on the desktop's where I can connect the network and disconnect it even if it requires me to hire out custom coding.

I guess what I am saying is would want the computers connected about once a week for a few minutes and then break the connection as easy as possible but also securely.

A little paranoid? Unless you're a big business or corporation I don't think you little home network is going to be attacked. I'd be more worried about spyware and viruses from your own surfing habits. For network wireless security. Just make sure you use the a security key and make it complex using WPA2 and AES settings. As for turning your internet on and off. You could just unplug your cable or disable the network card throught the short cut.
