Do you mean lan or wan? I'll assume you meant lan since you also mention G-wireless.

G is pretty good for streaming extended definition and some 720p movies if the signal is strong and and either the "roaming" update has been applied to all wireless zero config services on the client side or wireless zero config is disabled once the wireless connection is established.

The software to use to stream video is VLC Media Player (File>Wizard>Stream to Network) and it works best if you configure static local I.P. addresses for repeated streaming to one computer at a time. Once you've mastered that you can get into the multicast setup.

On the client side VLC player: File>Open Network Stream...and the first choice with just port 1234 should be selected. Click ok and you should get a windows firewall action request to allow VLC, click on allow and it should start playing.

If you have other security and firewall measures in place you will have to configure them to allow the access.

From then on it should just stream to the client computer with the ok of the UDP/RTP stream.
