My experience: it works (for SD, no HD here), but it's significantly 
slower when jumping around in the stream, browsing media, getting 
streams started etc. Bandwidth is enough once it was started to display 

That is, unless someone in the near neighbourhood turns on their 
microwave, in which case the bandwidth drops to somewhat below 
200KByte/s, which is not enough anymore and the picture stops (sound 
generally is ok).
VERY annoying since we cannot tell neighbours to stop using their 
microwave and I will thus not go for wireless in the long run.
