I am using a Buffalo Nfinity GW with 5 ethernet ports running dd-wrt as a Bridge between another buffalo Nfinity GW running dd-wrt that is connected to the internet. I recommend the Buffalo products for compatibility with dd-wrt. I get 270 Mbps speeds, currently it shows a 300 Mbps connection with 0 dropped packets and a slew of options including power level adjustments.
DD-wrt rules on these products, and I wouldn't buy one that didn't support it.
BTW, You can PM me, I have two brand new ones still in sealed boxes, I was going to use at my brothers, but he went and added the cat5e he needed. He is not a techie.

I just installed XBMC-Live on my new Jetway Mini-Top, following the instructions in Post #170. I've got everything working, except the remote. It appears as if the HID Aureal Kernel Module has been updated, so the steps for that install don't work.
Here's what happens when I try to install. The command:
Quote:git clone git://gitorious.org/hid-aureal-kernel-module/hid-aureal-kernel-module.gitdownloads the file just fine, but when I try to run make, this is the error message that I get:
Quote:make -C /lib/modules/2.6.35-28-generic/build SUBDIRS=/home/nettop/hid-aureal-kernel-module modules
Can someone please help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?
Edit: Never mind, I found an older version of the module, and was able to get it to work. Still need to get play/pause functioning, and map everything to my Harmony remote, but other than that, this box works like a charm.

No posts in quite some time. Everyone must be watching and streaming HD movies without any problems.
Gotta love this little system, it performs like a Big Guy HTPC for a small amount of $$$.

Actually for me this little box went back to the store, very disappointed with it, especially the lack of wake from usb.

Everything is still working beautifully here! Actually, it handles 1080p so well that I realized my network was now the weakest link. I had a pro come and run CAT5 to my server (which I now had to double capacity on so that I could upgrade all my media to x264 quality - now it's running 5 x 1.5TB drives in a RAID 5 array), and made sure every connection in the chain was gigabit (using a WDNR3700 router using dd-wrt and a Netgear Prosafe switch). Perfect, smooth bluray streaming!
Several friends were actually inspired enough to start working on their own XBMC projects!

Good job davemex, I need to do that also. I need two runs of cat 5e to fully complete my network and I will have 5 total xbmc boxes installed with two 4 bay NAS's. I need one more JW and it looks like the Egg is going to have one for $184 from the return below real soon. Just a shame that ppl do not know how to be creative or take the time to even ask questions, they just want a fully completed appliance, with no growth or new features, just PNP fucntionality. Return the best box available for the $$$ cause I don't know how, well it looks like a new box is in my horizon.

5 XBMC boxes? That's quite the connected household! Are you using, or have you considered using PXE booting on them instead of having to install hard drives in each of the boxes? Since someone posted the guide I'd been thinking that if I expand beyond a couple computers I'd go that route to avoid having to buy a hard drive for each of them (especially since I put an SSD in the Jetway - not cheap!).

At one time I was considering PXE, then I found a 2.5" Sata to CF card enclosure for $5 (Mounts just like a 2.5" HD), bought a couple of 266+ 8GB CF cards on sale at the Egg for $18 each shipped and went with that. Now have been replacing those with a 250GB WD Blue hd's (29-39 shipped when on sale) for growth and backup. (I needed more space on some of the JW's so kids, guests, family, etc. could unload their MP3/Ipods/phones/camera's music and pictures and keep their stuff off my main system/NAS)
The PXE would be a good project for you to work on and post your results here. SSD is expensive and needs more time in the market for true life expectency (R/W) MHO. I also looked at pulling out the atheros wireless pcie mini and putting in a pcie mini ssd. (8-10GB used dell, but costs as mush as the 250GB HD's I've purhcased)

Would this or the Zotac ND22 be better? Will the NG-ION really perform any better vs the extra CPU boost of the Celeron SU2300?
