Newbie question :) ATV3 and wifi


I just got an ATV3 and have managed to get it working using a Belkin N300 modem/router , which my iMac is connected by wifi.

Ive noticed firstly that my Imac looses wifi signal quite often even though my router is a few meters away

Same with ATV3, it sometimes streams movies ok and other times just stops part way through and loads for half hour then goes again .

My family also have wifi devices which they use all the time .

So, I guess what Im wondering is running all the wifi stuff at once reducing the signal to each device ? So that if Im trying to watch a movie and my kids log onto their laptop and phone etc... will it steal my signal from my ATV3?

Is there a better way to setup my home network ?

I know very little about routers and modems etc

Ive tried reading heaps but every time something is recommended there are people who say dont buy this or that ?

Im so confused, I love my movies and Itunes etc... I have Handbrake and am working out how to convert movies to a format I can send from my Imac to the ATV3.

I would appreciate any advice ...

Im in Australia and am happy to spend whatever as long as I can watch my movies in peace and the kids can have their wifi stuff going too.

Thanks in advance
