Windows 7: Media Center Network Streaming Lag

30 Dec 2009   #11

Windows 7

Motherboard is a GA-EP45-UD3LR.

I am just paying for the basic Fios service. I am right next to the switching box though. Zay, I am not streaming from a website, I am streaming from another pc in my network.

I think I need to have the Pc's connected via wire instead of wireless though, I think that may be the problem.

Try isolating the issue by:

A) Using ethernet on only one PC.
B) Allowing only one PC on network at a time (clarity).
C) Allowing Wi-Fi on same PC.
D) Allowing only one PC on network at a time (clarity).

People think Wi-Fi is faster than Ethernet. 'tis not. Nor does a basic ISP provided gateway/router provide enough bandwidth for multiple PC streaming. A good wireless router with MMS should allow significant bandwidth but not nesessarily 4 PC's streaming the same source at once.

Isolate the issue.
