comment Does long-range Wi-Fi work well when traveling at high speeds?
WiFi runs over TCP/IP, so assuming the signal isnt terrible, you might have packet loss, but still be functional.

AV hardware is off topic. However, if Sony is willing to look at it, why not let them?

comment Ethernet/8P8C crimp contacts bent
When it comes to crimping, especially if you are going to be doing a lot of it, spend the extra money on a quality crimping tool. Not only that, cheap, low quality RJ45 Network Modular Plug Connectors (the head) are often the biggest cause of crimping headaches. Find a vendor with good reviews and your life will be much easier.
