FWIW I can play livetv/recordings over 802.11g to my laptop *but* only 
reasonably reliably when I'm in the living room (which is also where the 
802.11g) wireless router is. Upstairs I can connect and play but get 
skips/pauses. Also there must be nothing else trying to use the connection 
otherwise it skips.

For 'normal' use (surfing, ssh, vnc, rdc etc) it's fine but personally I'd 
agree and avoid if you want good quality mythtv viewing.
