      With all these variables, it was a little bit easier in the days of fixed 2Mbps broadband and the modem connected directly to the computer!

I know via wireless i can expect a drop of in speed, but how much of a drop off is normal.

      Here is my most recent speedtest results on wireless connection, when located a few metres from the router using my Macbook Pro. I notice i get really big issues using Skype now in terms of call quality.

      If you get a good router you will get much higher wireless speed. You cant go wrong with an Apple Extreme however there is rumour that a new version is coming out soon.

      Depends on the generation and Model but the recent ones are either a 2x2:2 A/G/N card or a 3x3:3 A/G/N card.

      See http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/sky-b...ap-router.html for what I managed with a 2011 Macbook air (2x2:2 A/G/N broadcom card) and a cheapo Tenda Router being used an AP only.
