[mythtv-users] Wireless Bridges and "Thinking it's wired"

It's true that using a wireless bridge will allow you to use the RJ-45 port, 
and in that respect the machine will "think" it is using a wired connection.

But it will NOT perform like a wired connection. It may work with TCP, but is 
likely to have problems with UDP packets that have no error correction and 
retransmission mechanism.

Or do such bridges convert UDP to TCP and then back again? That would be cool, 
but unlikely.
