Sounds like a setup issue with the Buffalo.

Remember your DNS and Gateway will be the same IP as the router, like 192.168.1.1 or whatever IP you use to connect to the router for setup.

Thanks to all who helped me get the Buffalo and HR20 working. I now have a completed setup on the HR20, however, now I don't see the Music or Video items on the Hr20 Menu. I've tried WMP11 and TVersity.

When I had the DLink G810 it worked fine. Now with the Buffalo, not seeing the shared files on the PC. Any Help/tips/suggestions?

I am using the Slingmedia Slinglink Turbo powerline adapter. It simply plugs into a wall outlet near the router (and connects to router via ethernet) and then has a four port switch that plus into any electric outlet. It currently is connected to my HR20, my SlingBox and a wired computer in my basement. Easy to set up and works perfectly.


Thanks, I'm considering ordering the Slinglink, but I came across some conflicting information. If you look at the specs from Sling Media, they indicate the maximum throughput is 14Mbps. But I found this link that indicates it is "rated at 85Mbps max".

Do you think 14Mbps is correct? That's about what you would get with a wireless connection. I've seen some other powerline adapters that have much higher throughput than that.

My connection shows 100Mbps. It's plenty fast.

Thanks, that's what I needed to know. I think I'll give it a try.

What speed is recommended for VOD? The netgear HD powerline adapter claims to be rated at 200Mbps.

That sounds like a good "EARL" question. :)

I have not seen a recommended speed. However, the faster the better would be my opinion. A slower connection will certainly slow things down.

The internal speed to your home network will most likely not be the bottleneck. Consider the fastest speed your ISP can provide, that is where you will see the biggest difference. Even the slowest connection using a wireless 802.11a connection will most likely out run the speed the ISP will be providing.

802.11b is actually the slowest. :)

True. Fast coble connections run around 5-6 Mbs on the download side. 802.11B is rated at 11 Mbs. The speed inside the house between machines will be faster than the speed of content coming into the house.

If you want to stream content from what you have stored in the house, go for the fastest gear you can afford. No gear will help download speed from the ISP. For that, inquire about buying faster download speed.
