I agree with you it isn't logical to me either. But if, for some people, the bottle-neck is CPU load rather than network bandwidth, then this might help them.

I'd question your 2nd point. If I'm not even getting 5Mbps download speeds from my broadband connection, then it's unlikely that I'm getting lower bandwidth over wireless at a (theoretical) 54Mbps. Even the older 802.11b wifi connections are 11Mbps.

However in most cases I would recommend people use their ethernet connection, but don't rule out quirky cases where wifi is the better option!

All I can say is that, at a fixed quality setting of 1600 Kbps, the wifi connection gave me a better (smoother) picture feed on my TV.
