So here's the $64,000 question. If I drill a hole through the floor and run cat 5 from my router to my pc? The reason I ask is that I have the WIRELESS whole home connection kit from directv. Is this going to cause a bottleneck like my wireless g, or will it provide sufficient bandwidth for D2PC? Any advice would be most appreciated.
I've got DECA, a wireless CCK, a wireless G router, and a cat5 to this PC.
When I first tried DirecTV2PC, it worked fine "but" watching OTA HD was limiting at 16 Mb/s, and then would be choppy as frames were being dropped.
I logged into the router and changed wireless channels. It now works fine.
Not sure what the wireless band looks like where you are, but here there are well over a dozen with decent power and another dozen that are weak.
Thankfully most are still on their default channel, so some are still free.
