Does the New Sagetv Media extender works with a Wireless extender?

Greetings. since majority of houses in Puerto Rico are made of reinforced concrete, laying cables to connect network equipment is quite difficult. I am wondering if anybody has tried to pair up the HD theater with a wirelss extender in an wireless N network. I appreciate all teh answers and help with this topic.

By the way, I am planning to use a Linksys WRT610N router (server linked to it via gig ethernet port) and a Linksys WGA600N attached to my soon to be delivered HD theater.

Looking at the numbers, 802.11N certainly has enough bandwidth to support probably any stream you want to watch. However, the problem with wifi is that behavior isn't consistent. In theory, it could work. But I believe that most people around here that have tried it are not happy with the results.

I found this thread, which may be helpful.

Thanks for the link for the post regarding wireless. It seems that some people had achieved sucess by pairing up their devices with the right combination of wirelss equipment, AP placements, and perhaps tons of luck? I will give it a try and will post results. thanks.

One thing I have notices with N, is that it seems to change rate more often than B/G if you let it. So when you first get your gear placed and turn on, let it sit for a bit (maybe 30 seconds) and then see what kind of throughput you get.
