Networking hardware requirement

To steam Blue Ray or movies wirelessly throughout my home, what type or router and network adapter do I need? Also, will I lose any picture quality from streaming?

You do not want to steam or stream blu-ray or any HD or any video for that matter of wireless



You want cat6 1Gb preferably or 100mb min for any kind of quality video distribution.

You cannot easily setup MDs wirelessly anyway at the moment. Wired is definitely the way to go. And no, you are streaming digital information, so naturally there is no change in quality.
