Hiya,

I have just got a wireless nework up and running, more by luck than judgement I feel, so almost ready to slot in the SB2!

I noticed the speed varies between 11Mbps, 5ish Mbps and now and then pops up to 25ish Mbps, when copying files across the air.
(80???...g 54Mbps Router)

Will these speeds be fast enough to send Flac files across without gaps appearing?

Hope so....

Cheers for any comments.

SB2 has a nice large stream buffer, so those speeds will be more than capable of
stutter-free FLAC goodness. FLAC is typically around 800-1000kbps, and SB2 is
sporting 64Mb of buffer memory. I'll leave the math to you :)
