One of our Staff members asked me to post this about the routers...
The My Net routers are far more than just a "simple" router and can benefit a WD TV user greatly over a traditional router. The My Net N600 and N750 use QoS technology (FasTrack) that allows for traffic to be prioritized using more than 20 pre-configured services, many of which are available on the WD TV products.
Advanced users can also configure custom services.
The My Net N900 and N900 Central have an advanced version of this QoS technology (FasTrack Plus) that intelligently determines the type of traffic and automatically assigns bandwidth as needed.
In both cases. depending on your ISP and total available bandwidth, this can dramatically improve performance over services such as Netflix. It should also improve gaming speeds, and speeds of services like "Skype" - even if you are downloading multiple files or torrents at the same time (it will automatically reduce the bandwidth available to the downloads to ensure your Streaming video, games, or VOIP sessions are not interrupted reducing "skipping" etc.)
The N900 also offers seven full ports which allows for additional NAS devices (over most routers 4 or 5 ports) that means you can have a much larger media library (if you have 6 My Book Live Duo 6TB drives this would give you 36 TB of available space in addition to your internal drive (WD TV Live Hub only) and USB drives. Using 12TB WD Sentinel's instead of the Duo's could theoretically give you a whopping 72 TB of available space + local storage.
Finally, because it's a WD product you know that it is going to be thoroughly tested with all of our devices- this will reduce the chances that a router related issue will cause issues (a large number of issues people think are with the WD TV's are actually router related issues).
