Router security settings

If I have a wired connection from my desktop pc to my router do I still have to bother with "wireless security"?

I don't have any need myself to connect wirelessly at the present time.

Many thanks.

The simple answer is no.

Don't forget you still need a Firewall and AV.

You do need to make sure the Wireless function on the router is turned off

Also it's best to change the default password and username on the router for added security.
