i have had my SMP a couple of years now enjoy it very much and have always used it with WIFI.
i have a very limited setup. my router is a couple of feet from the laptop and my TV and SMP are about 12 feet from that.i live in an area that unfortunatley only has a 1mpbs connection but it does for the most part suit my needs. however i subcribe to mlb.tv whose minimum requirement is also 1mpbs.when watching games there is an occasional freeze and on rare occasions a reboot however from what i have read on this forum that unforunatley happens but i can live with that.
my problem is that there is a constant buffering every couple of minutes only for a few seconds with the blue spinning wheel and after about five minutes i get the black screen saying i do not have enough broadband for the game.i re connect immediatley and it starts all over again.
i am not expecting miracles but my question is if i ran an ethernet cable directly from the router to the SMP and then configured it to wired instead of wireless could this possibly give me just enough of a speed jolt to avoid this happening.
if that is an option worth trying would i need to make any confguration adjustments to my laptop?
my wireless connectivity is:802.11b/g/n and the network card is:10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN.
if this could work i would just hard wire it permanently.
would most appreciate any assistance or ideas
