I use it wireless on odd occasions (illness etc.) but it really only works properly reliably when plugged in, even though there is full signal strength around the whole apartment playback is still jerky on any scene change and takes a while for playback to start up. HD channels here are around 4 to 14Mb/s H264, haven't tried playing blurays or other movie stuff.


I use 802.11n to stream from my mythtv backend to my laptop without
problems whatsoever no matter the size of the file.

802.11n over 5GHz really have a crappy coverage ; I have two access
point in my house and it covers "just". One 2.4GHz 802.11n covers the
whole house as well as the whole garden.
