FYI: there not exist two identical WiFi setups.Ray [email protected] Network said:I have a WiFi adapter that I have used with a 722, 922, and now the Hopper. I get a signal strength of about 48-55. I sling all the time streaming Better or Best/HD quality without any problems. I use the extender cable for the adapter to pickup the strongest signal. If you have further questions, please let me know. Thanks.
Or buy multiple large directional antennas and ramp up the Xmit (like I did .) Wireless Joey using Dish-supplied wireless adapter streams flawlessly 22-45 ft away with 4 walls. Cordless phones are 5.8 GHz, I'm still using 2.4 for WiFi, vacuum/microwave are a non-issue. Then again this is with $200 in WiFi equipment, not your typical setup .P Smith said:WiFi = unpredictable speed, I would say - unreliable connection for HD stream(s).
Just turn on your microwave or start your vacuum or use your cordless phone for test...
