I have the same setup you mentioned, and I haven't noticed any decrease in performance.  But, in theory, there shouldn't be any increase with the internet connection itself.

The only thing is this:
Unless you have a 100mbps or 1Gbps router or switch, your wired lines will talk to each other on your LAN (but not the internet) at 10mbps.
If you use wireless 802.11g, your wirless computers will talk to each other at 54mbps.  (802.11b is 11mbps, so there's not much of a difference between that and wired).

So, if you're transferring files between two wireless computers on your network, it should be faster than tranferring files between two wired computers on your network.  But the speed connecting to the Internet shouldn't be effected.
