Does the wireless bridge functionallity in SB3 affect the sound quality when playing music and transfering files from a computer connected to the SB3 at the same time ?

I guess that I'm afraid that the music will get less bandwith over the wireless network and that this would affect the music played.

I was going to buy a separate wireless card for the computer but I just realized that it might be possible to use the bridge functionallity in the SB3 instead.

I'm using FLAC as format for all music files if that matters.

It shouldn't. If you use up too much bandwidth there's a risk that
you'll get dropouts, but there won't be any subtle degredation. Keep
in mind that wireless is a shared medium, though; even if you get a
separate card for the computer, it'll still chew up the available
bandwidth.
