Hi people, So after much consternation, I made the plunge and got an Extreme 5gen (factory refurbed). Performance with it so far has been decent but not perfect, I'm wondering if there's anything i'm missing. Here's the network setup: Hardwire: HTPC / HD HomeRun Dual / xbox 360 / Time Capsule -> ZyXel switch -> Airport. Wireless: Mac is always on and connected (though usually idle). Then there are a handful of wireless clients that connect from time to time. A few laptops, phones, tablets. I'm running seperate SSIDs for the 5ghz and the 2.4ghz. We're getting a solid wireless signal strength and we seem to be getting fairly good consistency from the ISP (Comcast Cable). We are having some quality issues, especially with regards to streaming. For example, right now the network traffic is solid (around 20mbs down according to speedtest). On the wireless network right now are the Mac (sitting idly not doing anything), a phone (2.4 ghz), and 3 laptops. The HTPC (which is hardwired) is being used to stream ESPN and the quality is occasionally maxed out, but mostly very poor to somewhat poor. Nothing on the network is hogging bandwidth, and again, we seem to have plenty of power coming from the ISP. I have removed the switch and cut out a few of the hardwired devices, but that doesn't seem to help. Anyone have any ideas on how to solve this? Without QoS options, I'm kind of stumped. I want to get this straightened out as we're eventually going to extend the network (perhaps by putting the TC in wireless land) and have an internet ready Samsung TV on the network and I know i've got enough bandwith from the ISP for simultaneous HD streams.
