I first connected the Livewire to a Linksys wrt54GL router and was able to stream a 1080p DTS 5.1 mkv video through my blu ray player with no problems then I bought a Linksys E2000 router and the video now stutters and freezes. This makes no sense since the new router has a 1GB switch and everything else about it is faster than the 54GL.
Does anyone have any ideas what might be happening I am running DD-WRT firmware on both routers.
Did you ever find a reason for this?
TBH, I think this question would be better handled on the DD-WRT forums, as the WD Livewire does not seem to be the issue…
Everything was working. You changed router and it stopped working. I’d look at the router! ;)
The only thing that comes to mind is make sure UPnP is enabled / working on the new router.
A quick google suggests that, by default, DD-WRT sets UPnP to “off”.
Let us know if that was the cause. :)
Nope, that was not the problem the other router also had the uPnP service off.
I will try the dd-wrt forums thanks for the suggestion.
