When you use a Microsoft Windows Media Center Extender device that is connected to a Windows Vista-based computer to watch a TV show or to play back video, frame drop or “choppiness” may occur. Additionally, the Network Congestion icon may appear.
This issue may occur if proprietary speed boosting modes such as SuperA, SuperG, or Turbo are enabled on the wireless network access point. Some wireless network access points contain proprietary speed boosting technologies that are incompatible with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, Inc. (IEEE) protocols.
Each manufacturer of wireless networking devices uses proprietary chip and speed boosting technology. Manufacturers develop technology for their own specific devices because there are no speed boosting protocols that are approved as standard. Therefore, one manufacturer's technology may not work with another manufacturer's device.
To prevent this issue, disable these proprietary modes on the wireless network access point. To do this, see the manufacturer's documentation.
