it can only ever be CSMA/CD, since its a bus.
more devices = the slower it is for everyone.

really?  higher-power wifi, e.g. 100mW transmitter and a true MIMO antenna
setup should be just fine through a few of these.  e.g. look at the apple
airport express with a 3:3x3 antenna setup.

I will be buying the above to get more speed to the server I access at home

as the data sheet for it states its IEEE 1901. you could of course just
download the spec yourself.
a trivial search finds it...

G.hn which i think Paul talked about a few AusNOGs ago is superior
technology at a lower price point.
