true, but you get what you pay for, ethernet is much faster. All depends how much data you need to transfer and how long you want to wait...

Ethernet is the way to go in my opinion, IF your laptop has an ethernet connection (most have them built in these days..)

estimated costs;
el ceapo pc card $ 20,--
utp cat5 shielded cross over cable $ 6,--

cheap and fastest solution.
