Okay, I figured this out, but this also did not help me. I put every actiontec in my network on full duplex (100 MBPS) and the network card on my Desktop also on the same one. This made the situation worse and even the network speeds in my media center dropped to below standard def levels. I also went ahead and changed my main router. I replaced it with a Linksys by Cisco WRT610N. This being a gigabit router, I followed the steps in the microsoft support article available at the following link.http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929707
From this article, I basically enabled the flow control and did not set the full duplex setting. I also went under Power Management on my network card (on my desktop) and disabled the option 'Reduce link speed during standby'.
These were various things that different people had tried. Initially even this did not fix the issue. I then restarted all of the components on my network and it looks like it worked. For the past few days, I have had no stutter when viewing HD content over my network and I am hoping this will continue. I am really happy that this worked out for me and am hoping that this will continue to work. When I check out the speeds, the speed is still around 50 to 55 MBPS, but I do not see any stutter.
A VERY VERY BIG Thanks once again to Xnappo for putting out this article and giving step by step instructions on how to use this.
