I'm using my Windows 7 MC to stream TV, recorded content and video files to my 2 xbox 360's. My plan is to get one more 360 soon, were moving into a brand new house with in wall network wiring.
I'm currently using the Linksys wrt54g to send the video out. Occasionally I'll get a Network Issue message popping up. Both the 360 and media center are wired connections, so I cant figure out where there is a problem. It usually says the network is busy, but not much is going on. The wireless is WPA protected, so its not someone else using my connection.
I'm having a new house built, and I've got them putting me in 9 network ports in the house in plans for my media center and other devices. I want to stream to 3 360's, not all at once, maybe at the max 2 at once. It comes with the OnQ built in router..which is know nothing about as of now. Is there a different router I should use for high traffic? Or does it not really matter? The woman who was working with us didnt know if the router would even have enough ports since I added so many extra. I've never seen a router with more than 4 ports, I've seen switches but will it slow me down if im using a switch with the router?
