Currently I have a Linksys WMP300N in my backend/frontend machine 
connecting to a WRT330N router.
I think I posted speed tests at some point, but it was faster than my 
100Mbps lan connection.  It was able to stream a 720p movie from my NAS 
box and stream 1080i tv shows from it without a hiccup. I'm pretty sure 
it could stream a 1080p movie, by my frontend processor get's maxed 
out.  The only problem I seem to have is when archiving my stuff from 
myth to NAS is the machine basically freezes when copying large amounts 
of data over NFS even though the processor is only at a few percent, not 
sure how to fix this.
