Wired and wireless connections same hub

I have a wired / wireless BT homehub , which I use wired for my pc and wireless for my laptop .
Just wondering if when I am using my pc the wireless network is still active and open to passer by hacking despite being WAP protected ?

The wireless network is active all the time, and protected with WPA all the time, regardless of which connection method you use.
