Presented in cliffs for quick reading:
- Have DIR-655 wireless router (wireless G/N) in office
- Living room has WD Live TV (wireless N) configured to stream files from shared folder on office PC
- Works great most of the time, but stutters on some files like ISOs and HD sources (getting approx 70-80% signal according to router)
- Add DAP-1522 bridge (wireless N) to chain (also 70-80% signal) and no stutter at all (now WD Live has “wired” connection)
Why should the WD Live stutter when connected wirelessly to the router direct but play flawlessly when “wired” to a wireless bridge? Wouldn’t the data throughput be the same for transmission to each device? If anything, I would have expected more stutter as there is now an extra hop.
