    Hi everyone.

    Looking for some advice.

    I recently received a Sony blu-ray player for xmas which has an ethernet connection. So I decided to upgrade my router from a D-link wireless G to a D-Link Wireless N Router (DIR-825). I then decided to purchase a NETGEAR 200Mbps Powerline Kit (XAVB2001-100PAS), as I didn't feel like paying $100+ for a Sony wireless dongle.

    So when I hooked up the NETGEAR powerline kit, the powerline LED showed a green link rate. Great news! But hold on...

    So I connect this up to my Sony blu-ray player and start watching some streaming content and immediately notice the powerline LED is showing a red link rate. Not good news...songs and some movies start to lag.

    I tried switching one of the powerline receivers to a different power outlet, but got the same red powerline LED link rate.

    Could there be a compatibility issue between the D-Link wireless router and the poweline Netgear kit?

    Any suggestions/recommendations would be appreciated.

    Cheers!

    Thanks for your response...but I'm not sure it provides any insight to my questions above.

    it could be quality of wiring - are any of these on an extension lead

    I stream music and HD video via a G wireless setup no issue - iPlayer, SkyPlayer and some stored HD video content and music direct to my TV and PVR

    All broadcast material is only 1080i

    so no reason why the G should not work fine ..
