I'm in the process of putting together a basic home theater system in my living room. Ran some tests with my BlueRay player, it's a Sony - BDP-S580 that I plan on using for Netflix and some local DLNA video. I really wasn't happy with the speed at witch the DLNA content ran, and Netfilx took a while.


I currently have an older style WRT300N ver.1, single strength seems poor through walls.


So, do you boys have any suggestions on a Wireless Router out there that performs well?

I couldn't find very much information on the 802.11 card inside the blu-ray player. But your router is draft-N which was in the earlier days when not all of the N cards worked well with each other so that could be one of your problems.


How far are you from the router? Are you going diagonaly through walls? What are you streaming DLNA content from?


Also you should be some speed tests with a laptop if you have one. Using speediest.net and maybe try transferring files over the network to see what speeds you get. Try this both next to the router and next to the TV to get a good comparison.


There are of course good routers if you want to avoid all the hassle and just buy a new one. WNDR3700 from Netgear is supposed to be one of the best. I just purchased a WNDR4000 but haven't really had a chance to test it out much yet.
