    I thought I only needed 2.5mb for Netflix, I have double that and I still get suuuuper lagged out when I watch a movie.

    I have the MI424WR, wireless Xbox 360 usb dongle, MacBook Pro with the Wireless N,G, and A.

    It weirds me out. I pay a lot for these services and I feel like I'm getting ripped off.

    you could probably do with 8 to 10mbit downstream to stream 2.5mbit content. Take in to account windows general noise over the network, other devices (xbox, pc, whatever) overhead in communications.
