Music playback drops frequently when using wireless

Post by botbanky » Tue May 27, 2008 7:58 pm

I'm running Ubuntu Linux version Hardy Heron 8.04 with the latest patches, use a Dell Inspiron 6000 laptop, have a DLink DI-624 router with the latest firmware, an XBox 360, and downloaded the latest version of Twonky Media. TwonkyMedia streams music to my Xbox, which the XBox recognizes just fine.

However, when playing music the music playback on the 360 is frequently paused for greater than 20 seconds, and this pause/drop occurs generally once every 2 minutes. During this time, the 360 is sometimes unavailable to respond to input. This problem may be related to the fact it's a wireless connection between my computer and the 360 (through a central DLink router), because when I connect the computer via a direct ethernet cable to the 360 this problem doesn't occur. Also, my 360 interacts fine with this router, since I rarely experience any lag when playing games online. I keep my computer in my office and 360 in my family room, so a wireless setup is a must have here. Any thoughts?
