-- wireless tranfer for the novice (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=182568)

It's not the routers that are a problem as much as wireless connections, even though they may say they are 11megabit/sec (wireless B) or 54megabit/sec (wireless G) or faster (wireless super-G) all have issues with distance and walls (in your case ceilings and floors). The speed ratings of these devices are "the best you can hope to expect" with them. In the real world they seldom connect at these speeds and quite often vary in their speed. In addition 2.4Ghz cordless phones can interfere with their signal as can neighbor's wireless set up.

In addition, the port they plug into in the back of the TiVo can only send information at a maximum speed of 12megabits/sec.

As for transfer speeds, I can not answer that question. Mine are wired.
