Linksys Wireless Router :: Streaming HDTV Media Through E4200 To TV?

Mar 5, 2012

Basically the problem is that the HD media steamed through the E4200 router has a significant lag on the TV. So details..I have the Linksys E4200 wifi router and want to stream the HD video from my computer to TV.The connection schema is pretty straightforward:Computer with 10/100 mbit network adapter-----(network cable)-->E4200----(WIFI)----->TV with 802.11n WIFI adapter.Also 10(ten) mbit Internet connection cable is plugged into WIFI router. The questions are:
1) Can the 10 mbit internet connection affect the speed of the media content being streamed through the E4200 router?
2) Does it make sense to buy the WIFI 802.11 n adapter and use it instead of the network adapter / cable in the connection schema mentioned above?
3) What can be other possible reasons of the lag?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Constant Reboots With Media Streaming

Dec 5, 2011

I upgraded my E3000 to a new E4200 several months ago.  I use an SSL VPN to connect to work which worked fine on 1.0.01 and 1.0.02 but I upgraded to 1.0.03 to fix an issue where the router constantly reboots when I stream Netflix or Hulu and now the router reboots with Netflix, Hulu AND the SSL VPN tunnel initiation.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Streaming Media From Attached USB Storage

Jan 9, 2011

I am very pleased with my purchase of the E3000 so far. However, one function seems to allude me. One of the main reasons for purchasing this router was because of its Media Server functionality. I wanted to be able to stream to my UPnP devices (ps3, xbox360, etc) without having to keep my power hog of a PC running. I have set up the HD using the Storage tab of the Advanced Router Settings, and created several Shares on the Media Server tab. The good news is that I am able to access the share on my PS3. The bad news is that I can't on my Xbox360s. As the Xbox360s has built in wireless N, I would really like to be able to stream to that system.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Drops Connection When Streaming Movies

Aug 1, 2011

When we stream movies in two different rooms at the same time we drop our netflix or vudu connections. Can I enable or disable any settings on my router that would work. I love this router have 35 Mbps on internet speed so I don't think that is the problem. Range runs from 35 up to 45 Mbps all the time. I know how to access my router settings and navigate where to go and what to change if I can. I have 3 laptops, 1 wireless printer, two blue-ray devices attached.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Drops Network Shares WDTV Streaming

Jan 3, 2013

Basically I use the WDTV to stream movies from my PC and external harddrive (which is plugged straight into the router) to my TV. The WDTV has a "Network Shares" section and my PC and harddrive usually appear here.
The only way I can get them to show is to reboot the router each time I want to use the WDTV player.
Is there a setting on the router which I need to enable/disable which will prevent the network shares drop?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Movie Streaming Between Server And Popcorn Hour A110?

Oct 18, 2011

Got my E4200 a month ago, and have since been experiencing problems with movie streaming between my server and my Popcorn Hour A110. All kinds of movies stutters randomly and becomes unwatchable. Streaming of the same movie from my server to my laptop (connected wirelessly) causes no stuttering.
I have been doing some troubleshooting and determined that it is not the server's fault (it achieves transfer speeds of 60+ MB/s through Samba). I have also ruled out the possibility that the Popcorn Hour is the faulty component.
Lastly, I just tried switching from the E4200 to my old D-Link DIR-655. This has effectively removed the stuttering, leading me to conclude that it is the E4200's fault.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Ethernet Wired To HDTV NetFlix Streaming Drops

Feb 9, 2012

I have a DIR-655 that's wired via 40' of Cat5 Ethernet cable to a bus near my Sony HDTV. I get great reception and speed and all the available HD channels via my Time Warner Cable subscription.

My problem is that since subscribing to NetFlix (streaming only) when I stream a NetFlix movie I get "reloading/pauses" every few minutes. NetFlix says it requires 1.5 Mbps but Internet speed tests show I'm consistently getting between 5 and 10 Mbps.

I also have a Sony 3D DVD Player that is NetFlix enabled and when the pausing gets too bad I switch to it and sometimes it works, at other times it pauses just as frequently as the TV.

I always turn the PC off when watching TV.

Sony HDTV 46" LED EX720 Internet TV Features: Full HD 1080p in 2D and 3D, LED backlit, X-Reality Engine, Internet TV for streaming entertainment, Wi-Fi Ready, smooth motion with Motionflow XR 240, USB input

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Sharing Media Across Network Via USB

Mar 10, 2012

I have been using the e4200 for about a week.  So far, so good!  However, a primary reason I purch it was the ability to share via USB across my network (Files and such).  Read the approved USB drives that r compatible and although my specfic drive was not listed (WD, my Passport) I connected it to the e4200 and set a folder called "movies"to share.  In this folder I have both bluray rips (25-32GB) and standard rips (5gb or less).  Regardless of source, the content was not playable.  It buffered like crazy.  So, is it as simple as using an approved USB drive and I will be able to share appropriately? 
The same folder plays great when connected directly to one of my media streamers USB drive, so don't think the drive/source is bad.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Static Media URLs

Jan 1, 2012

I'm a big fan of Cisco products and recently have purchased an E4200. I always connect my iPod classic to the router and listen to the music on my ps3 and laptop. The only problem is that I can't make any playlists since the media server creates a different link to a song, every time I reconnect my iPod. It'd be great if you allow the server to create links like below. I'm sure all the users will e much happier with it! [URL] like this.
Something tells me I'll never see the day that I can activate this feature on my E4200. Anyways, I leave it to your engineers make it happen...

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Media Bridges Can't Show Up In DHCP Table

I have 2 Media Bridges, a Trendnet  TEW-640MB and TrendNet TEW-680MB.  Both are set as a Static IP on the devices and   In the DHCP table for my E4200 I don't see those.  I have no problem accessing them typing in those IP addresses but wondering why they don't show up in the table.Actually looking at it more closely, the devices hooked up that are active seem to show up.So I see the following below.  And where is list LAN but no name those seem to be devices connected to the media bridges.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Copy Large Files To E4200 Media Server

Aug 27, 2011

I've rolled back my E4200 router to the old firmware, then set up a media server.It generally works (e.g. it streams pre-existing media files to other devices). I can copy to this external drive small (say, < 1 MB) files. The drive has enough free space. However, I cannot copy to this external drive large (e.g. 700 MB) files.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 - Access Is Restricted To Media Server Configuration

Oct 23, 2011

I use to run Twonky media server on my iMac and I was very happy with it. Now I have purchased a Linksys Wifi Router E4200. Twonky server embedded works fine with all my devices except with my Samsung D8000 Led TV. In the Mac version I must identify manually the player (Samsung TV), if not mkv won't play. The question is: How can I select the device in the Linksys E4200? The config page is not available and displays "Access is restricted to mediaserver configuration" E4200 firm V. 1.0.03

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Media Server Ignores Folder Hierarchy?

Jan 5, 2012

I have a 1TB drive attached to my E4200 that contains several videos sorted in a folder hierarchy, like this (these are just examples):
TV Shows
01. Episode 1.mp4

As you can see, all of my videos are in a carefully constructed heirarchy.  This works with my old media server (Rivet for Mac).  On the E4200, however, all of these MP4 files are merged together.  My Xbox shows folders like "Albums" and "By Date", but these don't really mean anything -- all of my videos are jumbled into these folders and there's no way I can find anything.
Here's how the media server is configured:
If I can't find a solution, than the media server feature of this router is absolutely useless to me.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Media Server - Certain Files Cannot Properly Parse

Jul 18, 2011

I decided to play around a little more with the media server feature... I've succeeded in getting SOMETHING consistent out of the 1.0.02 firmware. It's not 100% useful.
Here's what I did - whether it's pertinent, who knows:
1) I made the Media Server "Name" completely unique. My router's name was "Penguin" and that seemed to proliferate throughout the settings on the router everywhere (SMB server name, FTP, Media Server, etc.). I decided to just call the media server "Server." I then checked the option to DISABLE the server, and saved settings.
2) With the Media Server OFF, browse to the share on the USB drive, and completely delete the T wonky folder.
3) On the Media Server page of the router config, add your media sources.
4) Enable the Media Server, save, and you'll then see the T wonky folder come back, and if you go into that folder, you'll see some files being "built."
I tested a few videos and some music with the XBMC media player on my Mac book and a Windows 7 PC. I was able to add music and video sources on my small selection of test music and videos. I was also able to play them. MP3 tags and embedded artwork showed up properly, and the streaming over wireless was very good.
Now... Here's the kicker. This was just a VERY small sample of my entire collection. I had about 5 albums in MP3 format on the drive, and about 10 movies that I personally converted to MP4 with Handbrake (ripped each movie to about 1.4gb). When I threw my entire 90gb music collection on the drive and told it to scan (it, being the router Media Server page), it seemed to populate the albums up to a certain point, and then crashed. I saw the data files in the T wonky folder getting larger for about 5 minutes, then it stopped growing. At that same time, XBMC wasn't able to see any music or videos. Even after turning off the media server, then re-enabling it, I wasn't able to see anything. If I deleted the T wonky folder, and went back to a smaller subset of my collection, it once again worked "reliably."
So, one of several things is happening here.

1) There are certain files the media server cannot properly parse, and it's crashing the services that run it.
2) Something is corrupting the media database files which then prevents it from showing up.
3) There's a maximum number of files or file size that your collection can be.
If only there was a syslog we could get to on the stock firmware...  Linksys.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Media Server Becomes Unavailable Most Of Time / Renders Device Useless

Feb 6, 2011

I have the new E4200 with an attached 750GB hard disk.All works well, however the media server becomes unavailable most of the time and renders the device useless.
I can connect to the Media Server from my xbox and laptop for an hour or so, and then all of a sudden it is gone. The only option I have is to reboot the router to bring it back online however not all of the music and videos are shown on the media server (yet).I uploaded quite a bit of music and video to the hard disk, I can initiate a scan but after a while the media server becomes unavailable / cannot connect to it.

Asus RT-N56U - Streaming Media Over WAN Using Only Router

Jun 18, 2013

Here's the key background info:

I've got an Asus RT-N56U router. Attached to the router is a USB hard disk with a bunch of music on it. The music is accessible to devices on my LAN over uPnP/DLNA; this works great. My WAN connection is provisioned at 100 Mbps down / 40 Mbps up. I want to use some of that upstream bandwidth to stream my music to myself wherever I happen to be. I could but don't want to leave a server running on my network 24/7 to accomplish this when the router is already able to share the content locally.

So what I want is some way to make the content that the router is already able to distribute across the LAN accessible over the Internet as well. I've looked around but haven't found any prebuilt solutions to this that don't involve hosting the content on a server behind the router, which I'd like to avoid.

The router does have built-in support for serving up the content over FTP, but I've tried that and found that it really does not play well with media players. It kind of works, but the seek time when switching between tracks is absurd, and some tracks just plain fail.

One thought I've had is serving up the content over HTTP by installing an Apache instance on the router (and/or editing the configuration of the built-in instance that provides the configuration portal, if that's possible?). The router appears to run some trimmed-down version of Linux (I can telnet/ssh into it, it has a filesystem, package manager, and similar things).
