I currently have a "G" wireless network that works great for streaming such things as Pandora to both TV and Blu Ray Player (both LG). However, even streaming SD is a little touchy. Would like to stream Amazon Streaming media and Hulu Plus.
I want to move to "N" but am a little confused by all of the dual-band, simultaneous band, etc. Most of the reviews out there are mixed on ever piece of hardware so very hard to get a feel for what the correct setup is. Here is what I have:
2 wireless G PCs
Blu Ray (can do N)
TV (can do N)
1 PC (can do N)
iMac (can do N)
3 wired PCs
(need at least 4 wired ports)
Obviously, these are not going all at the same time, and phones are low usage for texting, surfing web. Primary draws will be PC, Mac on N and TV.
Suggestions? Thanks in advance.
UPDATED: I guess I should describe my conditions. It is about a 2900 sq/ft home. Currently, the router sits above a bookcase in the office, and most wireless distances are inside of 30ft in most cases only through 1 wall or 1 floor. G has worked great for signal strength. Of course, the furthest link is the TV or Blu Ray at about 40 ft. I tried the Powerline route, and although I could get a signal, and at first looked strong, it would drop substantially and not work so gave up and returned.
