    Just picked this up today. Initially seemed great. No pain in the butt plug
    into pc for config necessary. Plug into 360, instantly recognized. All
    network config can be done from 360 dash no problems.

    Good signal, strong connection, all golden with the 360 extender. Streams
    video even hd no problem.

    One huge issue: if i go into my music folder on the 360 mce, the adapter
    instantly reboots and connection to the pc is lost.

    It only reboots going into the music folder. Video folder, no prob,
    pictures, no prob, all the other areas, sports, more video, xbox live, all
    other options no problem. Only the music folder makes it reboot instantly and
    every time.

    Never seen anything like it.

    Anybody have a clue?

    I've got two 3420's and two Xbox 360's and have not seen this.
    1. what router are you connecting to?
    2. a or g?
    3. what kind of security are you using?
    4. what firmware in the 3420?

    and can you describe how your music folder is organized?

    library is organized by sub folders for each album. About 85 folders.

    Any attempt to enter the music library instantly causes the adapter's 3 blue
    lights to go off and then come back on. Then I get the media center has
    experienced a failure would you like to reconnect message.

    Damndest thing I have seen. I also have a DWL-g820 that I was intending to
    replace with the 3420. This issue does not occur with the 820.

    I guess I am going to return the 3420. It's a shame because I have been
    wanting one for a while and fry's has them on sale for $39. I have never seen
    them for even near that price before.
