Streaming Video to 360. Works with USB adapter, doesn't work with DD-WRT.

I use my router as a wifi adapter with DD-WRT, why? Because it was cheaper, and I think it's cool to find something that was once useless in a closet and make it work fantastic as something it was not intended to be. I'm into that sort of thing.

Now that that's out of the way, it's been working perfectly as such EXCEPT for streaming videos to my 360. My crappy usb adapter works fine with it except today it started making the videos stutter (because it's crappy) so I wanted to make this thread to see if anyone knows why exactly my router/adapter won't play nice with my 360. I am on the latest dd-wrt firmware... so I don't understand why my 360 won't see my PC, and why my PC won't see the 360..

What setting in the DD-WRT control panel should I be looking for?

Wireless 802.11g = 54 Mbit/s

54 Mbit/s = 6.75MB/s

If the distance is longer the connection speed get worst.

It's wireless N but the distance isn't far and the router I'm using as an adapter has 2 8dbi antennas that I replaced the old ones with. Doesn't have a problem seeing my laptop from upstairs where the ISP router is..

So basically the router has better range than the usb adapter, yet is not detecting the 360 and vice versa. What could cause that? Distance surely can't be the issue.

This explanation is confusing, is the problem the choppiness of the videos or your xbox not showing up on your home network?

Is the video being streamed from another device or from a service like netflix?

If the video is being streamed from another PC, you will generally have issues when going over wireless depending on the quality of the video, I remember trying to stream video wirelessly to my PS3, half the videos were stuttering messes, with a hard-line this problem is completely solved.

The other issue is a possible latency or incompatibility when using the router as a wifi adapter for the xbox, I am sure it will function on a basic level but that is something that is not officially supported.

I'll try to explain again better

my pc and Xbox 360 both are connected to my ISP router... when I use a crappy USB adapter with my PC.. the 360 sees it just fine. When I use my dd-wrt router to connect to my network.. it doesn't see the 360 and vice versa. In every other possible way, the latter is better than the USB adapter. So when the video began stuttering with my USB adapter, I've come here to see if anyone knows why the dd-wrt wouldn't be able to stream to the 360 despite it being the better WiFi solution.
