I too am using DHCP with fixed addresses so I'll play around with that a
little. My kids are at the 'webkinz' stage of gaming so hopefully that
isn't causing too much traffic :)
My router is a Linksys WRT54g running firmware from dd-wrt. I'll look
into what I can tweak there that could have an impact.
On a side note, I'm curious why Myth doesn't realize the stream is lost.
Do you think I should open a defect?
Thanks for the suggestions.
