Mifi 2200 - PS3/Wii & Netflix

Does anyone currently have Netflix and use their Mifi 2200 to stream over the internet to watch TV via their PS3 or Wii?  If so, how is the connection?  Can you watch movies without interruptions?  I am looking to possibly purchase the Mifi 2200 if it works well.

 

Thanks in advance for your comments :smileyhappy:

If you are in a strong signal area, you can get enough bandwidth for all that you mention, but beware of the 5GB cap.  If you warch 5-6 movies in a month you are over the cap, and it could get expensive fast. 

 

The Netflix interface we tried doesn't seem to like WiFi too much, you might want to stick with a traditional USB modem and utilize one fo the Cradlepoint routers to get ethernet connectivity.   We use the MBR1000  (see MBR1000.com) and it gives us 4 LAN ports, we use one for a printer, one for a mass storage device, and one for a desktop computer, and one for the Netfilx.  

 

It also allows us to use two USB modems, which gives us more bandwidth, plus keeps us under the 5GB cap on each card. 

 

Paying for two 5GB plans is much cheaper than using 6GB on one plan!
