I know, i know, Ethernet is always more reliable. However, I don't have that option. Here's the thing, I am soooo close to getting this to work. I can stream 720p effortlessly with no stutters, and 1080p works some of the time, but eventually it breaks down and stutters and becomes unwatchable. Do any of you know of any way to make that little tweak to a setting somewhere to push it that last mile?
I've got a D-link dir-655, and a dwa-140 in both my computer and my WDT LIVE. Win7 is set up with file sharing and WDTV streams everything like a champ, except for 1080p.
I've  tweaked the 655 alot, turning off QOS, using JUST N mode, using 20/40 hz option instead of just 20 etc etc.
I know this is a difficult topic, but if any of you have any idea, please lemme know!

Lucky you, I can't even get a 4 minute mkv clip in 720p to stream properly! (120MB)

Switch to a Media Server as it uses UPnP and not samba.  You will need a pretty solid signal too.
