I don't mind showing my ignorance, so does the same apply when one is using static IP addressing?
If so, then what solution do you recommend? My router wasn't inexpensive ($300+), but it's only got 8 ports. I've already added an 8-port switch (to the tune of $80+) and I'm currently at port capacity before the addition of two Moxis and two Mates.
FWIW, I'm already using video streaming on multiple devices at the same time (I think our max has been three at a time) through my switch with no apparent problems whatsoever . . . no stutters or dropped frames or anything like that. What kind of problems should I be seeing?
Also, FWIW, I worked for a state agency where we had switches scattered throughout the building with no apparent problems. Of course, we weren't regularly streaming video (although we did do some), and I wasn't on the tech side of things to know if there were problems . . . I just know that as users, we didn't have problems.
I thought our house was ridiculously wired until I started talking to other friends, and while I think we're still over the top compared to the people I know, most aren't too far behind me.
I understand networking isn't the topic of this thread, but I imagine I'm not the only one in the situation of trying to figure out how to best fit the Moxis in an already crowded network and not having unlimited financial means. If connecting one or more switches to a router isn't good, what on earth would
be an acceptable & affordable solution?
