This problem has me stumped, and since I'm not really an expert when it comes to network troubleshooting, I thought I might as well ask here.
I have a hard drive shared on my network that I use to share media across all computers connected through a wireless network. The network uses the following router:
TPLink 300M Wireless Router Model TL-WR941N.
The media being shared includes family photos and videos.
Up until a few days ago, we could stream the videos across the network, ie. someone could double-click the file directly on the network folder and watch the video on their computers. However, after some change (which I am still unaware of, as nothing was installed/uninstalled on my PC), the videos have become choppy. I narrowed it down to a buffering problem, but I am not sure what to do next.
How do I proceed to narrow down the cause of the problem?
Other bits of information that might be useful:
There are two host computers that are streaming the video at the same time. Both, the hard-drive read speed and the router upload/download rates can support this demand without any problems, as this setup was working in the past.
I found that one of the computers has no problems streaming video, but the other does (all of a sudden). Could it be a problem with that computer?
Thanks for any help/advice!
