    Best wireless router/adapter combo for streaming netflix
    Hey. I have an lg 370 blu-ray player that will accept an internet stream from Netflix. My computer is in one room, TV in another. What's the best wireless setup to make sure movies stream smoothly to the TV?

    The technology is the important thing. Not the brand. Wireless "N" routers are becoming generally available. Those have the fastest potential connection. Wireless "G" routers are limited to 54 Megabits per second -- the actual connection speed depends on the signal strength, etc. This is even true with Wireless N routers. Since most Internet services provide less than 20 MBPS, either wireless N or wireless G should be adequate.

    The most important consideration is, in fact, the speed of your Internet Connection. This is almost always the limiting factor. If your ISP provides 2 megabits per second, even the fastest wireless router won't be able to supply the movie to the TV in real time.
