So I am not impressed with the Tablet's range. I can't even make it out of my theater/game room without losing signal. I love the idea of being able to play games throughout the house. Looking at it like a wifi extender, is it possible for Nintendo and/or a third party to make an extender so we aren't limited by 25 feet? Or would that be too slow for streaming games to the Tablet?

All I know is that I wish I had your game room? I tried it out last night in my bed and it worked but would freeze up every few minutes. I would say the range in my house is about 10-15 feet through 2 walls. I would hope there is some option to extend the range. Whatever it is, I would buy it.

My house is set up such that I would almost have to go outside to get out of the 26 foot range. But mostly I sit in my gaming chair when I'm gaming.

The game room is 28 feet long and 15 feet wide. I have my setup on one end. By the time I get out of the room, the signal is gone.

I am thinking it would be too slow, if you care at all about synchronization. This would probably be expensive and still introduce several frames worth of lag.

It uses BlueTooth. BlueTooth was never meant to go far.
