I am going to build my first home network.

I have chosen the Linksys ea3500 looking to eventually stream HD video over the network, and not wanting to buy something I have to replace later.

To start out however, I want to save some money by not buying wireless adapters for two older XP running computers that can sit near the router. Maybe I will buy adapters later, or maybe I'll just retire the computers.

In the meantime, can I just hardwire these two machine into this router using the ethernet ports in the back of the router... essentially not using the wireless feature at all for now.

Thanks,
