      No.

      With another Sagem (the Sagem 2304n) it can help to improve the speed of the User Interface, but that's about it.

      It may improve the general stability of the router as the wireless chip creates heat which is not good for any kind of electronic equipment. In addition, if you are not using it, the most secure wireless connection is one that it turned off, there is then no chance of being piggy-backed.

      Agreed with regards to stability, but there is a small possibility that someone could hack into a wired LAN, without actually having physical access to it or the Internet via another source.

      With the correct specialist equipment it is possible to pick up the LAN signals radiated from a network. Since there is little, if any, encryption, once in, anyone could read the data once in.

      Shielded cable would offer substantially better protection.

      The reality is though that this is unlikely to be done in the home environment, but could be a way for government or industrial spies to operate.

      I was talking about the real world Scubbie
      I dare say with the correct specialist equipment you could listen to anything anywhere in the world. That's why top organisations and governments have 'quiet' rooms which are impossible to penetrate. Anyway, listening to radiations and piggy-backing wireless are a bit different
