I have a Linksys WRT610N that's treated me well, it's got some "media" functions but I hardwire everything I can so I have no idea what that means to them. Is there anything your current router doesn't do that it needs so? Does the Samsung need to support any special protocols?
For displaying movies and pictures on the Samsung, you can connect the HDMI cable to the X and it should work just fine without a network. Depending on whether the Samsung supports it you can also try to play with the DLNA settings on your X and see if you can get them to work properly. DLNA servers are also sometimes called uPNP media servers. I haven't had much luck with the X's DLNA app as a client, but it does seem to be geared towards displaying stuff stored on the phone as opposed to streaming from another server.Galaxy Nexus (VZW)
Motorola Droid X (WiFi)/Motorola Droid 2 Global (VZW)
Motorola 9505A (Iridium)/HP Zeen (WiFi)
Thanks for the reply jdbower,
I am trying to do everything wireless since hardwiring is going to be a lot of work. Even the TV is built into the cabinet flush, so really none of the connections are that accessible. (there is a false door underneath the TV, but in a perfect world I would not like to have to hook up the X by a cable)
Right now the router serves its purpose (which is very basic), but I wasn't sure if I was needing to go to a dual band to be able to transfer photos and movies efficiently (again not wanting to hardwire)
The Samsung does have DLNA, but I have not played around with it at all. Not sure about special protocols, but I don't believe so from what I read.
This all is mostly new to me but would really like to get the right pieces of the puzzle before I move any farther.
