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 went through the same troubles,
tells the tale. I tried belkin ethernet over power, and tried to
bridge my eth0 and wifi0 (wireless G in those days)

then, I was on N 2.4Ghz, which was susceptible to microwaves(!) -

I am now using N 5Ghz, and things have been smooth ever since. For the
record, I use netgear n600 for the router, and a Cisco-Linksys WET610N
as my bridge. as long as its not 2.4Ghz, you should be good to go
