    You'd need Wireless-N for it not to perform like a dog. If your router is just a G, its probably not gonna be too clever although the quality of video can affect performance. Google Wireless ABGN if you want to know the differences

    I watch movies streamed over Netflix without any problem over wireless 802.11g. After all, the wireless isn't the bottleneck... it's the Internet connection... and I've got a 5Mbps down connection. The movies look just fine to me... so it should be quite doable.

    I can stream 1080P video to my xbox over a G router without an issue and thats from the web. Between two machines in the same house? shouldnt be an issue with a G class router. Have you got any more information on what the vodafone router is? make model etc?

    I stand corrected gentlemen, I'd read on a search on google you can get dead spots and the picture can freeze but you can't believe everything you read :oops:

    Agreed, wireless isn't an issue (hence the fact that you can stream to a PS3 and have that as a media server).

    I even watch media streamed to my Archos 605 wirelessly from my NAS, never an issue.

    Well, you can, if you have a crappy wireless connection. :) Just like the picture will freeze a lot if your wired connection isn't stable. ;)
