OK, this is probably a basic networking question, but as I'm trying to test this on my MBP, I figured I'd start here. I recently bought a Buffalo Linkstation 1 TB NAS to use as a Time Machine backup disk, as well as a repository for videos to be streamed wirelessly throughout the house in the future. I'm running some tests and having difficulty. The NAS is plugged into a Verizon Actiontec MI424WR wireless router via ethernet (I have FIOS). The MBP is connected to the network wirelessly. It's a base 13" w/4GB RAM. I have had no issues with my Time Machine backups to the NAS; after configuring the NAS, the inital one was done via wired connection to the MBP--all subsequent ones have been done wirelessly. To test my plan, I put a movie that I've previously played on the MBP onto the NAS. I then went into Finder on the MBP, found the movie on the NAS, and launched it. Playback was horrible; a couple of frames played, then stalled, then played, etc. So, is the issue a data transfer one from the NAS through the router wirelessly to the MBP? Or is it a memory issue on the MBP end? Or was I supposed to configure the NAS and/or the MBP differently to optimize video playback wirelessly? Or am I just going about this all wrong with my hardware choices? As you can tell, I'm kinda lost with what is probably a basic understanding of wireless network configurations. Thanks for any assistance anyone can offer!
