WD N900 router with 1TB WD My Book external hard drive connected via router port in office
2 WD TV Live - one in the family room and one in the bedroom connected wirelessly
I just purchased the N900 router in an attempt to connect my house wirelessly and avoid having to carry the hard drive room to room all the time. I went through the standard setup for the router with no problems and my WD TV Live units have access to the content stored on the external hard drive. I have not done anything else beyond the standard setup, not sure if I need to.
The issue is that it’s painfully slow. It takes 5 mins before a 500MB TV show will start streaming and even when it does the picture is degraded. I’ve been unsuccessful even getting an HD movie to play (ie. 1-4GB).
Am I missing somehting in the setup? How can I get the movies to stream faster and at the quality they should be? Thanks in advance for the help, I’m really hoping someone can help me get this working they way it should.
