...and all your NAS boxes are hooked via USB? OK I'm confused! So what's the point of having gigabit ethernet if you can't stream media through a network? Or are you talking about something else?
No, NAS is NETWORK attached, not USB attached. The point of the Gig interface is: Streaming FROM network sources, Streaming LOCAL content TO network destinations, Internet access, etc.
