      Sync speed affected by wireless?

      Hi guys

      Possibly a stupid question! I have several machines behind a router, one of which is on wireless in the room upstairs. The machine in question is only getting a "very low" or "low" signal from the router but the download speed is sufficient for the Mrs who likes browsing the net. Question is: will my modem sync speed be affected by the poor connection with the machine upstairs? My gut feeling is that it's a no since packet transfers occur between the exchange and the router (i.e. before packets are redirected to other machines by the router) but I thought I'd ask anyway .

      Thanks!

      Yes - you are right, the speed that your router syncs with the exchange would not be effected by the poor connection.
      cheers
