I have an Airport Extreme Base Station bought in 2003. We use a wireless Roku Video Player to stream video and even though I pay for the fastest speed from my cable ISP, I get average quality streaming on my Roku player. I am fairly computer savvy but confess that when it comes to wireless tech specs I am in a fog. Could the reason my Roku registers average quality video be because the Airport Extreme is older and therefore slower when it sends the video stream to Roku? Would a new Airport Extreme give me better results?
Perhaps, but only if the Roku unit supports 802.11n networking. If it only supports 802.11g or b networking, then the AirPort Extreme unit isn't the bottleneck.
I'd check the quality of the signal between the Extreme and the Roku using the instructions in this post
