Reply To: Newbie question about using firefly on Maxtor mss+



I’ve had lots of painful experience of setting up Roku Soundbridges wirelessly and I have to say that I’m with S80_UK on this one – in my experience rebuffering is almost always caused by poor wireless performance or interference. Unless your wlan is very, very busy you should have plenty bandwidth to do what you are trying to do.

To fix my wireless issues (including rebuffering) I tried all sorts of things including bridges, MIMO routers etc. In the end I nailed the problem very cheaply by buying some cheap Buffalo routers, installing dd-wrt and boosting transmit power. No more wireless issues, Roku disconnects or rebuffering. In fact, I’m gradually coming round to thinking that wireless might actually be a viable networking technology!

Hope that helps,
