I think you might be confused about how much data is being transfered. What you suggest would merely take away the ability to watch ANY of the recording before it had finished transferring - not really speed it up.

A full strength 802.11b signal will get you about 3.5-4.5 Mbps without WEP enabled. With WEP enabled, expect 2.5-3.5 Mbps. As you put walls and distance between your wireless adapter and your access point, your speed will drop.

The speeds are going to vary depending on how far the units are from the source(.ie the router) and if there is any interference. The throughput on a 802.11b maxes out at 11Mbps in a perfect senario. So unless your network covers a large area or you have walls or appliances causing a lot of interference you should get better speeds than that. In theory.
