hey i am new i just joined cnet soo i dont know all the rules yet sorry if i break any.. i have a question

i plan to get a Sony BRAVIA XBR KDL-40XBR9. The problem for me is that i am gonna put it on the second floor. MY wireless internet modem is on the 3rd floor. i was wondering if it is possible to connect the tv to my modem via wireless. I don't have a Ethernet cable that's that long. I read around that you can connect Tv's through ur pc. SOo just wondering if i cant avoid connecting it through the PC and just connect it via wireless.

My second question is that i have a ps3 soo is this tv gud. Like when it comes to gamming?
