    At least 35ft. I can still hear sounds and interact with the Wii from a room on the opposite side of my house. There shouldn't be any reason I guy couldn't put the Wii in the basement and distribute the signal to any TV in your house. Just use a battery powered sensor bar.

    Nintendos Offical statement is 35ft. However with a basement there could be latency issues, depending what the floor is made out of, etc. This is bluetooth after all.

    The real distance limit is the IR signal from the WiiMote for the pointer on screen. For most game required onscreen pointer, the limit is up to 8 feet (from the sensor).

    Yup but remember the Sensor bar is only plugged into the Wii for power, and does not actually do any data sensing, so one could easily use any powered IR LED bar, that may power more than 8 feet.

    toxic gen has a point you could just do that like nothing. Ive seen homebrew Sensor Bars that are made of the simplist things and have way more range than the official one.
