You'll probably be best off running Ethernet, to be honest.  
Theoretically, 802.11b should have though bandwidth to do SD, right?  
Wrong. Wireless only gets around 30-50% of claimed throughput. Going  
full ethernet will just be easier. You'll only have to run the cables  
once (twice if you remove them), you won't have to deal with  
interference from things like phones and microwaves. Encryption won't  
be an issue. And there's far less overhead on wired ethernet than WLAN.
