Using a wired terminal you are an ordinary user guarded by all the premissions set up by the adinistrator.If you use your own laptop with a wifi card you are the administrator of the machine and you can send anything you want to the network. It means that you can also fake MAC addresses so if you are clever enough you won't be caught at all.So a wired access can be restricted (unless you tap in with your own laptop), it's much harder with wifi.
