I'm running an N network at home, my laptop connects to a Netgear 
WNDR3700 over a 5.2GHz link using network manager. I've maintained links 
for weeks with no dropouts or connection problems.

I consistantly get around 85 Mbits/sec in iperf speed tests with a 
100Mb/s ethernet link on the server. That's about the best I think I can 
hope for.
