The need for Wireless-N AP/Bridge

I’ve a low end multimedia computer that is hooked up to the television. It plays all my digital medias (videos, photos, music, internet radio, …) to the TV. Well, the idea of multimedia players wasn’t so strong in the past when I got the scrape computer to do the job.

The problem is when I access multimedia contents on my NAS (DNS-313) over the wireless link. My room used to be a wireless dead spot until I rectified it using the DIR-655. However, the link quality isn’t really that great and streaming videos over the wireless link could be problematic at times. Since the DNS-313 mainly holds my multimedia content. I’ve though of moving it closer to the multimedia computer as it access it more often than other clients on my network.

Got a pair of Wireless-N access points (WNHDE111) from NETGEAR to do the job. Great thing is that it provides 2 Ethernet ports! One for the DNS-313  and the other to multimedia computer. So I would expect low latency and high speed between the DNS-313 and computer. At the same time enjoy better wireless link due to the 5Ghz spectrum.

Hope the wireless-N bridges (WNHDE111) does its job well. 😀
