Is my home network dropping my NAS streaming of video?
Well …. first time viewer / poster / member ….
Ok … so tonight, and I’m not sure if it’s been happening other nights just noticed it. I have on my system
A Router Linksys WRT 3200ACM
A LapTop MSI / Win10
A NAS: LS421DE Buffalo Linkstation
I’ve got quite a bit of music stored and tonight when trying to play it while others were watching tv was playing it on my laptop while I worked. Now there were various times where the stream stopped. I’d look at TaskManager and it show 0 for sent and received on the network.
I finally opened a command window and would ping the NAS and the Router and I’d get 500ms time values.
A couple of times even my wifi connection would drop … I don’t have it connect automatically.
How do I trouble shoot this?
Again any information is gratefully accepted.
