You mean you want a wireless solution, or you`ll have a cable running
between them ?

If you run a cable between them you`ll definitely be OK (up to a certain
length, but a normal house isn`t likely to stretch those limits)

You`ll probably be fine anywhere in a normal house with wireless too, but
you may have additional security worries then...

Plus, with wired, you pretty much know that it'll deliver a certain
speed.

With wireless, it can vary depending on things you don't know, such as
if there is lots of metal in your walls, or interference.
