    hosting with wireless is not recommended.
    wireless makes the internet speed half as slow, so people would lag.
    also, it best to do it with a modem, because you dont need to forward ports, just disable the firewall.

    I host with wireless and nobody laggs and i have 16k and download with 10k hmmm i think you arent right.

    Ontopic:You can host with wireless just open the ports in your router.If you dont know your router password try to search for Haxors Portforwarding Guide theres a programm that opens ports via UPNP.

    Ofcouse you can host with a wireless connection as well, open 6112 in your router or firewall or whatever you got. Here is a great site for port forwarding PortForward.com - Free Help Setting up Your Router or Firewall

    Make sure you deactivate your software firewalls or open ports in it.
    You suck. Suck a little less and become a fan on Facebook.
