In past years, I've tried this and never gotten it to work.
I have a folder of video files that I would like to be able to share with other computers. Now I don't have a network setup up, but I do have a wireless router. Currently, I have linksys wireless G router, but I also have this spare Linksys wireless-N router that I've been planning on using instead (I've been too lazy to do the swap and redo all my settings).
The problems I've run into in the past is that the network connection whenever I set it up is always so sketchy. Sometimes i can't find the computer, sometimes I can't find the file. Sometimes I find the file, but the connection comes and goes, or it's too slow and the file doesn't play properly. Sometimes every click on the shared drive takes forever to process. I've just never had good success doing this.
So I guess the question here is twofold:
--Help me set up a decent network using the wireless router. The only thing I know of is the Windows simple-sharing thing. if there is something better, or some nice software that makes it easier, let me know.
--Next, what is the best way to stream the movies? Is the wireless bandwidth capable of handling a movie?
