While I'm streaming movies from
I doubt very much that a change to an "N" router would help unless you are using the max bandwidth or have a low signal on the recieving end of the "G" router.
I have a windows home server that streams to 6 devices in the house. It used to be a "G" devicee and i never had issues except when large amounts of internet traffic were happening and then it was not sync issues like you have but small blocks of LAG.
Steaming media via wirelss is not really reccomended and a WIRED connection is much prefered.
your sysnc issues are more likely to be the computer or device that is feeding the media.
I suspect a probable CODEC issue especially if they are MKV files that have this type of problem irrespective of overall speed.
Your media extender may also pay a large part in the issue too.
I use an MVIX ULTIO and a PATRIOT BOX OFFICE as two of my media players without any problem
I did extensive research to find a cheap but suitable player and western digital and linksys were almost at the bottom of my list due to player issues with file formats.
Most of these devices are capable of firmware upgrades and i think you may be better looking at that aspect first off before spending money on a new router.
From there you may want to take a hard look at cable to the box.
Some of the larger players in the extender/player market use a short sighted approach with limited playlist for formats etc.
If it is only one type of file that causes the issue consider installing a simple media transcoder software at the source that would convert on the fly to a more suitable format

I have 2 extenders - both are doing this: when I
This problem has affected many Linksys DMA extender owners in the US and Australia since 4 November; European users are unaffected.
Cisco (owners of Linksys) took an update server offline which the Linksys tries to communicate with; when it can't reach it, it fails to startup correctly.
The solution is to block the Linksys from accessing the Internet, at least until Cisco get the server back online -- apparently they are working on this and it should be fixed soon.
There are a lot more details in this discussion thread on The Green Button
and I've also written a blog entry with more details

My adapter is saying my wep passphase is to long
Yes; the pass phrase is only about 9 digits long. Go back to the router and setup the WEP security again. You are possibly trying the long version that sometimes is displayed, but that is not the one. Enter a pass phrase (this is used to generate the code), then hit the 'Generate' key, and the code will be listed.

It has nothing to do with the brands. I do have different peripherals of different brands and they work well.
Maybe your son's laptop is more recent than yours. When you connect the wireless adapter to your laptop, does it detect the wireless network? I remember having a similar problem on vacation. At the hotel, I could'nt connect to the wireless network. The tech support told me to adjust some settings on my laptop. He said to go to the Network connexions, right-click on the wireless connection and selection Properties. Click on Configure...And select the Advanced button. Then on the list select Power on saving Mode. Other than Max power save mode.
