Wireless is quiet, ethernet is noisy.
Wireless these days is very very fast and ethernet is hard to suppress as its basic cabling is unshielded (UTP means Unshielded Twisted Pair).
It is also prone to picking up interference from nearby transmitters, while wireless will not be affected (unless you are in the microwave regions where wireless is working).
For wireless security use at least WPA as the encryption or better, as having no encryption or WEP is a good way of getting your wireless connection hacked or leached very quickly.
I have ethernet throughout the house but use the wireless most of the time, as it does not suffer from HF RF pickup as easily.

Both Ethernet and Wireless will work fine, but for ease of use and noise suppression, wireless is better.
