Hi,

I'm just wondering what functionality I would gain by using either WIFI or RJ45.  Is there something additional I can use?

 

I see the use for firmware/software upgrades and streaming services, such as itunes or whatever...  but wondering if it can be used for other things.

 

iTunes streaming or xm streaming?

I'd say the major non-firmware use of networking is DLNA audio streaming.
