At least not if you want to access it using Windows. Playing music from my hackintosh, the music stops for a short amount of time then starts playing again. Twonky streaming videos to my NVIDIA SHIELD worked fine.
That’s all on gigabit ethernet.
The videos are stored on the same external USB 3.0 drive as the music.
OS X might be fine. Probably something to do with my desktop. It just stopped, and the network traffic was 0 under performance in the task manager.
The driver for my Intel gigabit ethernet adapter is from 3/23/2010. Windows 10 didn’t exist in 2010. Intel PRO/1000 GT Desktop Adapter no driver on Intel’s site for download.
