    Hi Macrumors,

    I do experience two problems:

    1. The Bootcamp installation of Windows XP sees my wlan network but fails to connect. Only the guest network works with xp.

    2. On the OS X side: connected to the dualband network via N, when I try to play a movie which is stored on my airdisk, every few minutes it skips a few seconds... very annoying.

    My AEBS wireless setting is set to automatic

    EDIT:
    I tried some different settings with really strange results. With the networkutility I checked the connectionspeed:

    Restarted the AEBS with the setting "automatic = a/n - b/g/n" -> 300Mbit/s
    Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 130Mbit/s

    Restarted the AEBS with the setting "N Only 5GHz - b/g " -> 300Mbit/s
    Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 54Mbit/s

    Restarted the AEBS with the setting "N Only 5GHz - N only 2,4GHz " -> 300Mbit/s
    Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 300Mbit/s
    (obviously my iphone can't connect)

    Restarted the AEBS with the setting "a/n - g only " -> 300Mbit/s
    Disconnected my MBP and reconnected it -> 54Mbit/s

    ???? help ????

    After a lot of testing and AEBS restarting, I noticed that when I use a separate name for the 5GHz N band, that the 300mbit/s remain even when I reconnect my MBP.
    Unfortunately the movie playback still stutters....

    what program are you using to play the movie??? I have heard that this may have a dramatic effect on your playback. I have been using plex for a while now and it has been awsome. I just hooked up a LaCie 2TB max to my AEBS and it streams uncompressed video-ts files flawlessly. You might want to look into it as an alternative to something like quicktime or vlc
