    Sorry for the question - I have searched and come up with a few results that helped - but i need an answer to something...

    I understand that if i raise the transmit power of my router - that it really isn't of any use becasue i can't raise the transmit power of my laptop wireless to the same level.

    but what if my main purpose is just to transmit mvoies for my server, to my laptop. would the increased wireless transmit power help is range/speed of the movie getting to my laptop?

    it would however, when you send data, it will also need to be acknowledged. wireless is a 2-way thing. so sending to the laptop maybe fine, howver the laptop may not be able to transmit the required distance for the router to receive. however, the Router should have a better antenna and can receive weaker signals.
