Is ethernet connection required?

Got the xFi Advanced gateway installed 6 days ago, and one computer uses an ethernet connection with other computers connected wirelessly. I may need to replace the hard-wired computer, and I wonder if Internet connection will be maintained in the interim if I unplug the ethernet cable and continue with only the wireless connections from the computers in household.

 

Thanks for help with this basic question!

As stated, it isn't necessary to have an Ethernet device connected, but it's a good idea to have one available for troubleshooting purposes in case of Internet connection problems.
