I’ll ask, then explain my reasonsing/situation below
Am I able to split the connection FROM a USB HD, to go both to a wireless router(for wifi access from multiple laptops/mobile phones) AND a direct connect to my WD TV Live player?
I have purchased a WD TV Live player and am anxiously awaiting it’s arrival In the interim, I want to make sure I know what the heck I’m doing so it’ll be smooth sailing once I have it in hand!
I CURRENTLY have had a Seagate 500 GB USB HD with a direct wired connection to my previous model WD HD Media player. This has worked BEAUTIFULLY for the last 2 years.
I’ve just(2 days ago) hooked up the USB HD to my Cisco e4200 router, so I can tinker around and figure out how to connect to it(wifi hard drive) via laptop, mobile phone, and pc. I’m assuming since I haven’t had an issue, the new WD TV LIVE will hook up just fine.
HOWEVER, when trying to stream a full length HD movie to a laptop, I get a TON of stuttering, freezing, and audio clips. Every once in awhile, it’ll work flawlessly, but when it doesn’t, I can’t find the reason/cause.
I’m sure there a million different settings I can find and screw with on the router, but I’m not IT savvy, by any means If the above described scenario is feasible, I’d rather direct connect the ■■■■■■, while retaining the hook up to the wireless router.
Can this be done? Thanks in advance!!
