hi i hope this doesn't sound too stupid but what is the difference between a wireless streamer and a wireless extender - or is there none or is it just an extender does more?

I'm maybe not the best person to answer this question but my understandings are:

Wireless Streamer - This is a device that can stream data (usually media, ie audio) over a wireless connection
Wireless Extender - This is a device to increase the range of a wireless network

Maybe someone else can help clarify?

Hi thanks for this - what is getting me confused is that some wireless extenders also seem to call themselves wireless streamers as well - ie Xbox 360 as a media center extender ...

Surely then, they can stream data over a wireless network at an extended range? Wink
