I'm on the weirdest system I've encountered in a while. One of those ones that makes you wonder how many goats were sacrificed to make it work.
I'm staying in a cabin at a resort in a relatively rural area. So. There is a wireless router in one end of the main lodge connected to the lodge wired network. This connects to a wireless repeater mounted in the rafters of a small maintenance hut. This connects to a wireless dongle mounted outside in a plastic bag. Which connects via USB (2.0) to my laptop - the walls of this cabin attenuate the signal enough that there is no wireless inside the cabin. All of these are omnidirectional, but the one in the main lodge has a pringles-can-tenna.
...And yet I've got less latency and higher speed than our home connection, and no noticeable packet loss. Go figure. (That being said, our home connection... Well, I can say that it is stable. And it only occasionally drops packets. And they don't throttle, not that that would really make much difference.)
