Is it generally possible to have wifi & wired clients of a router on the same subnet so that they see each other on the same LAN?

Most consumer grade routers are set up to give out IPs on the same subnet by default. It might make sense from a security standpoint to separate wireless and wired clients, but in a standard home situation, there is really no need.

Yes, there is no reason that they need to be separated unless you have QoS rules or some other special need for it.
