    Hi Guys,

    I've had the BT home HUB 3.0 for a while now and it seems to be fine, but I can't stream video very well, when my old router did it without any problems.

    The setup I have is my xbox 360 can see my laptop's HDD, so I have my films in a shared folder (windows 7), so I can watch all my films on my laptop's HDD via my xbox 360, this all was fine and good with my old router, but with the BT router the stream stutters all the time and is just rubbish...

    Is this a know problem or can I upgrade some firmware to improve this?

    thanks in advance

    My 360 is wired direct to my router, but my laptop is wireless.

    Well there you may have it then.

    First try the laptop with wired Ethernet and if the problem goes away, take a read of the WiFi FAQ. (Especially the bits about channel conflict and how to fix it.)
