In general I find my powerline leg to be faster than most of my Wi-Fi links. The short distance 5G links are faster than powerline or short distance 2.4G links. However all flavors of Wi-Fi have considerably more jitter than powerline which in turn has noticeably more jitter than normal 100/1000baseT.
That said I can stream from my Roamio to my iPad with acceptable results using a WRT access point at the (max power, outdoor,in a shed,from 50') end of a my powerline leg.
I guess the point of this is -- how sensitive is streaming to jitter. Wi-Fi bridging is the worst from this perspective. Been there done that with high gain antennas.
