Just bought a new WD TV Live.
Synology NAS DS213
WD TV Live
The router and NAS are in the living room. NAS is connected trough ethermet.
I bought this WD TV live to the bedroom, wich is a couple feets away from the router.
It seems i cant stream a simple 320x240 video via wifi (Windows File System). I tried to connect to my living room TV via ethernet and it ran flawless, even a full 1080p 13GB video. So i assume the issue here is the wifi.
It could be the weak signal of the wifi that is available in the bedroom, but the thing is, i have an ipad, android smartphone and can stream and have a average wifi signal in the same bedroom as the wd tv live.
I also own a Apple TV 3, i put the 2 in the exact same place in the bedroom, and with the Apple tv i was able to stream a 720p video without any troubles. However Apple TV streams from my laptop via iTunes and WD TV live is streaming via Synology NAS.
What soltution do i have? It’s obvious that this product is not achieving my needs, so should i:
Return the WD TV Live and ask for a new one (maybe it’s a unit with a faulty wifi)
Return the WD TV Live and think on another solution, this will never work for me
Buy a wifi repeater in order to extend the wifi signal to the bedroom
Other (please specify)
If you need further information, please let me know.
