Wireless isn't necessarily THAT bad. It all depends on the amount of wireless traffic in your area, the wireless strength, the wireless speed, the wireless router you have, the solar eclipse..

It is stressed NOT to use wireless for hosting a game server as packets can easily go astray and be lost which is a no no. If you use a wired connection into your router, you will have a much more stable and reliable connection to host a server on.

Do you know what your upload speed would be?

Theres a rough estimate table on this link (near the top):

My 20 slot server uses about 1mbit, so think you should be able to run a 18-20 slot. Providing that 1mbit is upload and that your isp gives you good latency.

Not your pc, those specs seem fine as long as you aren't hosting and playing at the same time.
