    Before I moved, I had my PS3 and Dish receiver contacted to the router via cable. Everything worked great. Now that I moved, the router can't be in the same room, so I have them connected via wireless. There is definitely some slow down when streaming video.

    Would a wireless extender in between the router and receiver/ps3 solve the problem? Could I get one that is also a switch and set the extender with the other components and plug them in and have it solve the problem?
