I have recently purchased a ReadyNas Duo NAS. It is connected directly to the router via an network cable.
The performance is slightly sluggish, and if I stream HD content around the house it's a tad slow. Not awful but it will stutter for a second or two. So I am looking for ways to boost the performance of the network.
Am I right in thinking a newer router will help boost performance? At the moment my router is quite old, 54mps wireless g router. Should I look at Wireless N and something capable of transferring more content around the house?
What specs should I be taking into account, and should a get one with Gigabit ports? If I connected the ReadyNAS via a Gigabit port what performance advantages would take bring?
