We actually have a Roku 2 with headphone option on the lower level of 3 floors. It is a northern climate solid and well insulated home. It works fine with our "G" router discused above and also did work ok with the temporary testing of the "N" router. It was other items ... laptop and tablet that the "N" router gave a week signal to and they dropped or failed to connect properly. The Roku 2 seems to do ok as desribed above.

So many moving parts...

Each wireless device transmits and receives. An older notebook might have an earlier version of 'G' or the aerial in the notebook is not optimum.

What works best is buying new stuff.

Just a followup. I bought a Roku 3 and it streams really nice in a location that has a weakened signal (through house walls about 50 feet away). I'm impressed with how easy it was to set up and how well designed it is.

Amazon is rumored to be coming out with a set-top box maybe this coming Wednesday, April 2: Amazon may reveal its set-top box next week in New York | The Verge
