no. 802.11g can do 54mb/s. let's say u only get 27mb/s. no problem for hd video. ppl have streamed 1080p over wifi in 2005. again..if it's unstable u need to extend with a better antenna or even base. also place the base high and away from walls. high multicast rate. the topic title is a disgrace. the admin continues to impress the mob with technical jargon. the mob rejoices and yells wifi suxxxx. all are convinced that i have no idea what i am talking about. it doesn't get more convincing than "it works". yet that means nothing for ppl who don´t want it to be true.
