Do those wireless usb adapters have lag/performance issues?

Are there noticable issues at least for gaming and streaming video? And that compared to wired straight to router.

"Generally, your Internet connection is going to be the limiting factor, not your home network. Home Internet access tends to be between 768 kbps up to 6 Mbps, but wireless networks usually rate 54 Mbps (you don't get this full speed, but even at only 1/9th of the rated speed it's still faster than the Internet connection).

Given that information, I wouldn't worry about it unless you have a very bad wireless signal at the place where you need it."
