I can use 10mbps homepna if I keep the bitrate low enough.
Try mpeg4 352x480, 2200 scaled bitrate and it should work.
Otherwise, you will need a faster network for higher res
but this should work.

802.11a should be fast enough for high res, high bitrate
but there are questions about range. If it is a short distance
in an apartment, it may work.
