If you can get away with it, wired will of course be cheaper. Frys currently sells trendnet wired usb adapters that are said be compatible for about $15.
As for wireless you can go with wireless adapters or wired adapters tethered to a "wireless bridge" (wireless router). The price of a wired adapter plus wireless bridge may or may not be cheaper than a wireless adapter.
Ebay is also a great source, if you know what to look for, but before you buy any hardware, always ask in the Underground part of this forum to confirm compatibility.
You also need to obtain the 6.2a version for the directivo o/s. This can be gotten for free if you know where and how, or from TCF sponsor DVRUpgrade for $20. Chances are the unit you have is running 6.4 but perhaps the one you are picking up hasn't been used in a while and you may get lucky. If so, you can use the free MFSLIVE software to copy the image over from one to the other.
Depending on your hacking skills and the time you want to spend, you may or may not want to pay for network enabling software. Again DVRUPGRADE has a $20 solution. But there is also a (slightly more involved) $5 solution used in conjuction with the zipper (again see the Underground).
