For a desktop computer (such as a RPi with RISC OS) WiFi does not
make any since.
It's totally the other way around IMO.
The files you need for your Risc OS projects are so small, that there's no real need to worry about plugging straight into the router if it's not conveniently placed.
Here's how I'm dealing with it: http://oi67.tinypic.com/2lm2yrs.jpg
The Pi on the left is running Raspbian - it's mostly a home theatre and retro gaming rig, but I configured dnsmasq for it to serve double duty as a wireless bridge as well.
It works pretty well - I can download files to Risc OS without interrupting my album streaming on youtube. It isn't the fastest way to connect to the internet, but Risc OS doesn't really need it.
