You don't have to.  If your network is working fine, using it, then you
may as well keep on using it.  It's key feature isn't really just
wireless, but in handling using different networks (allegedly)
painlessly.

e.g. Now you plug into your home LAN, later you plug into someone else's
LAN, and you might use wireless, later on.  With all that you have to do
is just plug in, or get close to the wireless, and not have to select or
reconfigure anything to use the different network.
