I bought a Netgear N750 Dual Band Gigabit router (WNDR4300) and I'm curious whether its preferred to connect wireless to the 5GHz band or wired to the Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports? I currently have my PS3, HDTV, & AVR hard wired to the LAN ports because I've been told that its best for streaming HD but curious whether the 5GHz wireless band would be faster for gaming and Netflix Super HD streaming?

I think hard wired would always be preferred. Even a good wifi connection can be affected by external factors.
