On MacBook, unless a microwave is going on, I can get HD stream fine
with DD-WRTed Linksys WRT  g router.

Lately, I noticed the WIRED Gigabit - 100baseT hub (Linksys g router) --
Gigabit switch -- Gigabit Mac, cannot watch HD stream. There is some
network hardware glitch between Linksys g router and the gigabit switch
(probably not so adequate wiring, but could be the switch needs
something changed) which makes the latency into > 200ms range while
streaming HD stream, and I cannot watch HD on wired network.
Ironic and bummer, and planning to trouble shoot the problem.
