Not to say its impossible but this is not a simple problem.
You in effect want all your equipment to be dual connected. The problem is just made harder by the wireless. Each machine will have 2 paths to choose and you must somehow tell it which is "better". To even have a chance your wireless devices at the edge need to be able to talk to each other as well as the central router at the same time. I suspect they can only have a single connection up. There are devices that can do this I just do not have time to read the doc to see if yours can.
Another point is that you cannot run N and G at the same time. All the equipment will switch to G. Now if you are using both routers on your list then you could run one G and the other N. If you are very care to pick channels that do not interfere the radio part will work but then you have the problem of making the routing work over the ethernet.
If you are having performance issues I would switch to all N equipment and see what happens. Video can be a challenge to get to work on a wired network.
Hi guys, I'm hoping you are able to help me out.
I have the following configuration:
Internet <cable> router (office) <wireless> access point <cable> htpc (living room)
I have an xbox 360 upstairs with this configuration:
Xbox (upstairs) <cable> network adapter <wireless> router (office) <wireless> access point <cable> htpc (living room)
The problem is that when I connect the xbox to the htpc, I have to go through the router in the office instead of utilizing a direct connection.
Is it possible to have a direct wireless connection between my htpc and xbox and at the same time have a wireless connection from the htpc to the office?
The hardware I currently have available is:
- Xbox 360 network adapter (N)
- Trendnet tew-672gr router (N)
- Linksys wrt54g router (G)
- Linksys wet54g access point (G)
Thanks for any help!
