I recently purchased a Neatgear WNCE2001 Universal Wifi Adapter to be used with my WD TV Live Plus. I wanted to know what other users have done to increase the quality of streaming video on thier network with this device. I run Windows 7 and have a Linksys WRT54G router.
First let me say that I can’t get the adapter to show up on my WD TV Live Plus as a wireless adapter. It thinks it’s an ethernet LAN connection. I can see my shared hard drives on my nework with no problem. However, streaming is hit or miss. I can stream 720p 4GB movies with no problem at times. Other times the videos freeze every 10 seconds. I changed my network adapter setting to run a 100 Mbps FULL and that worked like a charm for a few days. After that choppy video streaming again so I changed the settings back to Auto.
When I check the network connection on the WD TV Live Plus I get a green check on the IP Address but an error on the DNS Server setting. I checked my network and verified that the DNS address is the same. Also I used to get yellow and green LED inicator lights on the Netgear adapter for wifi connectivity (green being good, yellow poor and red being bad), now it goes from yellow to red. Not sure what to do at this point. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated .
