    As they both cost the same, I would get the ATD, due to its capability of connecting USB and Firewire and Ethernet devices/cables. Does that answer your "why"?

    OK then, so basically I don't need to connect ethernet to my MBP, when I'll be on ATD?
    And when I'll disconnect it from ATD, It will go on my Wifi? :)

    If you connected an Ethernet cable to the ATD and have WiFi on, yes, most probably, but even when I connect my Macs via Ethernet and both have WiFi on and are on the same WiFi network, sometimes a file transfer is via Ethernet (Gigabit, thus faster), but it also uses WiFi sometimes, I don't know why, and I have to disconnect one device from the WiFi network to properly transfer a file faster.

    Set the Service Order in Network Preferences.

    Thanks, didn't know that. Will see, if that helps the next time I transfer some bigger files. Thanks again.

    Just for clarity, you do this by clicking the gear below the interfaces list.

    I know, I have found it. I just never knew about the Service Order, thus my thanks.
    Though I had to repair permissions again ... ;) If you know, what I mean.
