Were your hd files full bitrate 19.2 or were they null stripped? All mine are null stripped ending up at 11-15 Mb/s.

Darin, not sure if your question was directed to me.... but if it was, the video files I am streaming are not hd files. They are vob files from dvds encoded at bitrates of around 6.5. pre-n routers with their matching adapters could not handle these smoothly.

Thanks for your reply. That is very good information that there is not a need to even try. I need to figure out a way to get a wire to the location. Thanks again for the info.

You are welcome.

Thing is, several people have reported that they have been able to stream video files using "g" and "pre-n" routers. Hopefully some of them will chime in with their thoughts and experiences.

After a week of trials I returned all my high speed routers and adapters, went straight to home depot, picked up connectors, wall plates, drill bits, cat5 cable, etc. Another week later I had a reliable wired network over one half of my house and much peace of mind. Now I can stream movies across the network without having to wonder when the next frame will get dropped; I can even play the same movie on 3 machines simultaneously! My kids now believe I have jedi powers :-)

I plan to install a wired network on the other side of the house too and bridge the two sides using powerline.

Wired is the way to go for HiDef. The wireless that can RELIABLY stream HiDef at SUSTAINED 19+ Mbps has not yet been invented.
