I've got a few questions regarding this, since I'm completely new. I'm trying to assess our situation and figure out what products are best.
Currently, the modem is in a closet in the corner of the very top floor of the three-floor house. I'm concerned that throwing a wireless router in there would broadcast the signals right out of the house. If this is the case, can I do some fancy stuff with an omnidirectional antenna and a repeater, somewhere on the middle floor?
What kind of transfer rate should I be concerned with if I'm interested in PC and console gaming, as well as Netflix/Zune video streaming? It seems the higher end of the spectrum is around 400Mbps, but is that excessive? How much of a difference will I notice between that and 150Mbps?
When it comes to adapters, I've noticed some that are attached through USB port, PCI-E port, and some that seem to be a second router that then allows wired connections. Any recommendation here? The TEW-647GA Wireless N Gaming Adapter appears to be an attractive purchase, since all my gaming and streaming is done in the same place.
What would be the ideal set-up? Any recommendations?
