Hi! Newbie wondering if I need a dual band router. Currently using D-Link DIR-615 Wireless N Router, 4-Port and when just using Roku XD/S, works good. However today when I turned on my laptop while streaming thru Roku, streaming stopped and message said reloading and program I was watching never came on. Once I turned off my laptop, Roku worked OK. From my ISP, download speed is about 13Mbps.
After a reading whole bunch of stuff, some of which I understand, it looks like I may need a better router. I had originally bought the 615 when I was only using the internet for info gathering, research, and email, not streaming, especially not streaming and doing anything else. I am considering the D-Link DIR-825 Xtreme N Dual Band Gigabit Router. Does this seem like an appropriate choice so that I'll be able to stream a whole video program using Newscaster (or a movie using Newflix) and doing some work/research on my laptop? We are using Windows XP and there may be two wireless users while someone else is streaming on Roku. Don't want to purchase router if that is not what the problem and if I do need to purchase a router, I want to get one to meet my current and maybe future needs. Appreciate any advice.
