Stream Music over network

    I have music stored on two different PCs. One has about 200GB of FLAC files and the other has about 100GB of MP3. All are sorted into folders by artist/album with cover art for each album. These have always been wired together with a BEFSR41 router. Last week I decided to go wireless (as I want to move one of the PCs to my living room to be able to listen to music there.

    I got the WRT54GS router and a WMP54GS adaptor. Currently the wireless PC is about 3 feet from the router. Even at that distance, it is almost impossible to browse the folders on the other PC as it takes about 15 minutes just to open up the main folder. Also, when trying to play the music (I use Foobar2000 on both PCs), there are constant dropouts (in both the MP3 files and the FLAC files, but obviously, the FLACs are worse).

    I was thinking about just returning the router and adaptor and trying one with SRX to see if it is better, but I am not sure if that will help.

    Does anyone know any tricks (or firmware/driver changes) that I can use to make this network work better? Is is best for me to go with SRX, or can I make this work with just the 'G' with Speed booster?

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    SRX would definately work better than the speed booster. im not a fan of the speed booster line to begin with tho.
