I would say no. Although, again they are quite different in use, they
are about the same in difficulty in setup.

I think that's because Wifi is so much more adopted, and therefore more
people are trying to use it. I have to say I setup my Wifi years
before these topics started dominating the list, and there where no
real problems doing so. The fact that I had a plain old Wavelan Silver
(or gold) INSTEAD of a card that needed other support (ie morewifi).
