Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
So I've got a wrt54gl router. My desktop is wirelessly connected via a WET54g adapter. My netbook is wirelessly connected via whatever is built into the netbook.
I've setup streaming solutions and things for my Xbox and PS3 to stream my terabyte hard drive full of movies to the living room TV and that works fantastically.
However, considering they're only like 2 rooms apart, I wanted to setup my netbook to be able to play WoW, from my desktop. Like, remote into my desktop computer so that I can run around and do dailies and such while I sit in my recliner in the living room. Using Win7's built in Remote Desktop Connection thing, I can access my computer, but everything I'm reading says that 3D graphics require too much bandwidth to stream over wifi.
Well shit, I say. But how come I can stream a 720p movie over the wifi to my TV, but I can't stream an 800x600 window of WoW onto my netbook over the local wifi? It seems like that's a rather similar amount of data to me, though I could be totally wrong here.
I also wouldn't mind being able to remote into my desktop from anywhere (not to play WoW, just to access it and mess around with files and such), so I had tried to setup a dyndns account, but if you type in the domain I setup into a browser, it just takes you to the router config page! I'm clearly missing something here as well.
So, is WoW not playable at all over my local wifi? Should I even bother continuing to try that? Basically I just want to turn my local wifi into a giant VGA cord with my netbook as the monitor.
