Boblite modem/wireless router (802.11n) to wirelessly connect to Netgear WN2000RPT (802.11n), NAS & ATV2 to connect to Netgear WN2000RPT via ethernet cables.
Correct me if I am wrong but shouldn't this allow me to access the NAS for XBMC and access the net as well?
Ah, so the Boblite modem/wireless router has the network ports but isn't close enough to the ATV2 so you can't plug it in directly and when you plug the NAS drive into the ATV2 that disables the WiFi connection on the ATV2 since both interfaces can't be active at the same time.
Obviously it'd be ideal if you could plug the ATV2 and NAS into the Boblite and remove the need for a wireless connection. There isn't a coax connection for the Boblite near the TV you want to plug the ATV2 into?
Anyway, if there's no way relocate the Boblite you'll need 2 wired network ports (NAS and ATV2)... I think your best bet is something like this setup. It should be more reliable and faster than a wireless repeater for streaming. Wireless is a last resort for media streaming... it's better than nothing but it's often a source of trouble.
