Hi there
AD protocol can do wifi at 7.2 Gb/s so can be faster than some slower ethernet hardware. However these routers are currently very expensive (around 400 USD LESS tax) and I doubt whether typical computer components would be able to handle the speed -- a lot of built in wifi cards on laptops is still only around 100 Mb/s.

In theory ethernet should be faster (generally) than wifi - but modern technology keeps pushing the boundaries. Once those types of routers come down in price we probably will see the end of a lot of LAN cabling -- switches and wifi extenders will replace them.

Even with a 10gig uplink theres still ALOT to be desired from AD.

Starting at, for sure, 35ft and possibly as little as 25ft (also,direct line of sight) you'll barely saturate 1gig.
