Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability
  

I came here to know some suggestion on the Wireless Network Capability of the Seagate GoFlex Satellite. In addition, the question is shown as below:
  1. GoFlex Satellite can stream at the maximum of 10 MB/second. Will this statement is correct or not?
  2. I have seen in the user manual that the limit number of devices is three So is that true the GF Satellite uses peer-to-peer wireless network connections to serve data to the 3 devices. Is this true?
In addition, I have read somewhere that the new upgrade to the Seagate GoFlex Satellite will Seagate GoFlex Satellite. Is this also true? Give the comment for this all suggestion.

Yes, for the first question, I will say that this will capable of streaming in HD upto the 10 MB per second but here for that also there is some reason for that using that. And that is some devices may not support High Definition formatted videos.

Re: Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability

Here I will say you that give permission me toss in incredible about that 10 Megabits/second thing. Here in the Seagate tech support labs and interior testing, we've been able to make HD movies stream to tablets and such with no trouble. It worked just very well. the HD movie has to be in a arrangement support by the tablet and the app playing it. But in terms of raw transport rate, getting the Satellite to stream at least 1 HD movie, that should be very well and we've seen it work in our own real-world difficult.

Re: Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability

I think that GoFlex Satellite creates a split Wi-Fi network that up to 3 devices can join. The GoFlex Satellite will execute the network setup mechanically once the device like tablet and smart phone. so for that reason I can say you that while working it looks like the wireless router, as it has its own SSID and it mechanically issues IP addresses to devices that join its network. We are looking into the ability of having the GoFlex Satellite join an accessible Wi-Fi network, but that would be in a outlook firmware update after we have finished more examination.

Re: Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability

I can say here in your cause that conducting up to three simultaneous users is too good idea. However, it seems only one can stream HD video at a time. The three simultaneous users would be more like three non-HD videos, maybe, or two videos and music, or something. So is there any firmware file available so we can cold flash the GF Sat when something goes incorrect.

Re: Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability

Your cause looks like that wireless network router inside the box is having with some capability still disable. In addition, for fixing this I think that you will need to go for the firmware update. HD streaming with 10Mbs max rate is adequate for low bit rate HD videos. However, it will not be enough for higher bit rate HD videos. Not to pick on Seagate, but I think this is something being omitted in the product description. And also I can say that conducting the three concurrent users is good. But it seems only one can stream HD video at a time.

Re: Seagate GoFlex Satellite: Wireless Network Capability

I managed to get my Satellite to join an existing WiFi network and I am able to stream movies via my media player, iPad and a Mac. All at the same time. Thanks to the guys who hacked it at hack seagate satellite dot com. I paid for the modified firmware and it works like a charm.
