Wireless connection from Sage Server to HD Extender


I have a Sage Server running in my den and a HD-100 extender in my living room. I love this setup, but I have to run an ethernet cable down my hallway and into the livingroom. I like to keep my house as neat and tidy as possible. More alarmingly, my elderly grandmother almost tripped over the cable one time when my family was here for a visit. I could run the cable along the ceiling, but the 100' cable I have is not long enough for that, and I don't know where to get a longer cable.

I see a lot of circle-jerkery on this forum about how to get a wireless connection between the HD extender and the Sage Server. Nobody seems to have a real solution. The Extender is otherwise an awesome device, but Sage really dropped the ball on the wireless issue. I have seen Popcorn Hour just has a little gizmo you plug into their unit and the problem is solved. Why cant Sage do that?

I have to assume Sage doesn't have a wireless HD Extender because either 1) it's technically impossible to get a 1080p signal over 802.11n or 2) they figured cost to do so was prohibitive to their customers.

I am willing to pay a lot more to get a wireless connection, so I hope the reason was #2.

Is there some sort of FAQ or procedure with a list of recommended hardware available? The monetary price is secondary to getting the ethernet cable out of my hallway. I would like to hear from someone who has actually had success, and what exact hardware they used

Anyone with good info can email me at palmer[two six eight] @ cox dot net.
