I have tried to google the answer to this one, but im having problems... So I'm coming to the experts!
First, what I have for hardware:
Switch: Asus GX-D1081
Router: Asus RT-N16
Modem 1: Motorola SB-5102 (Shaw Cable Extreme service)
Modem 2: Cisco DPC-3825 (Shaw Cable Broadband 50 service)
Powerline: D-Link Powerline HD
Computers and other devices
PC1 (Windows 7)
Seagate Goflex Home (Network drive)
WD Live Hub
- all my Ethernet cables are Cat5e
- the WD uses the powerline
- the laptops are connected to the ASUS RT-N16 via wireless, everything else is wired.
Now the question: If PC2 is conncted to the net through Modem2, and everything else is connected to the switch (which is connected to the router, then Modem1), how would you set it up so that all computers and such can access the Goflex drive?
The reason I ask is because all of our media is stored on the Goflex and I need to have a really fast and consistant connection to play the large (4G-12G) .mkv files on the WD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated...
