wired or wireless lan

i'll assume verizon will hit me with data usage charges even if i do wireless lan file transfers??

if so, i'll assume that i have to do wired lan for transferring file between my 3 W7 workstations?

Hello,

Data File transfers has nothing to do with the Data Usage, you're not on unlimited plan with Verizon?

You may do unlimited wireless/wired file transfers and won't affect your data usage plan with Verizon.

Streaming Music/videos, downloading/uploading files using wired/wireless internet connection will affect your data usage.

You may do Files sharing, but if the files are large the transfer rates might be very slow. You may give it a try.
Use the Homegroup Feature in Windows 7 to Share Printers and Files - How-To Geek

You may also consider a NAS solution, transfer rates are pretty fast. I use NAS at Home and Work and they are very good. I have 2 of these and works great.

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...
