Windows 7: Using Ethernet Cable between devices whilst using WIFI network.

Are you doing this at home or at work, If you are doing this at work I highly recommend that you talk to whoever is looking after the network and ask him/her for a solution because hooking up unknown devices at minimum could set off alarms and if you setup your own router that is connected to the company network could cause connectivity and routing issues that will cripple their network.

Might it be possible to connect one to the main network, effectively creating a sub network with just my laptop and the PLC on it?
Yes that will work, But like I said above if this is at work don't don't connect this to the work network

Ethernet cable vs WiFi
I have two laptops in the same room connected by wireless to my cable router. Is there any advantage to connecting them by ethernet cable instead? And if I do use a cable, should I turn off the wireless connection? Thanks in advance.
