Re: Best Linksys wireless router suggestions for a big house?

So no HD streaming videos, fast local copies, on the wireless? It will be like slow 10mb/sec wireless? I assume wired connections will be OK. I think at most, it will be just one or two wireless connections.

Your wired connections will not suffer. For eacth active wireless user and/or device your speed/bandwidth will be FURTHER cut by 25% or more depending on the activity.
So the extender cuts 50% THEN each active user cuts what left by an additional 25% or more.

General usages are: Surfing the web, e-mailing through webmail, watching streaming videos, one online gamer, downloaders, etc.

With the extender in place --- YOUR WIRELESS -- ALL your wireless --- streaming videos will have significant lags, gamer will hate it and if you have VoIP call quality will be very poor.

Surfing, webmail will be slow but OK --- downloading will be slow.

Thanks. So basically, it is like the current speeds without any extenders in the house's weak areas.
