    Hi everyone. I'm new to this forum and could use some help. I bought the 160G :apple:TV a month ago. I'm having problems streaming my movie content to the :apple:TV. Everything will stream fine, at first. I'm lucky if I make it through one movie without the :apple:TV loosing it's connection to iTunes. I can shut down iTunes and restart it, then the :apple:TV will find my library again. As you can imagine, this is starting to get annoying.

    My setup is this, :apple:TV hard wired via ethernet cable to my DLink WBR-1310 wireless router, my AT&T DSL modem is hard wired to the router as well. My Toshiba laptop is approximately 15 feet away. My movie library, 250 GB is stored on a 500 GB external hard drive connected to my laptop via USB.

    Could my problem be my router? Do you think I should look into purchasing a new router with 802.11N even though my wireless in my notebook will only support up to g? As you can tell, I'm new to networking...
