forget about this quickly. Your router is wireless 802.11_"g"_ which has 
absolutely nothing to do with what Norberto said.

Moreover a 2.3 Ghz P4 almost never has a Gigabit nic, unless yopu had 
added one later.

So there will be absolutely no difference between crossover and router 
connectivity in regard to the network speed that you will get.
