NP N54L Onboard NIC - Plex Streaming Issues?

Hi Guys,

 

I have a Gigabit Ethernet network that would stream HD content absolutly fine from my old eMachine HTPC to my Samsung HDTV via Plex. I recently moved to a N54L with 2 x 3TB WD Reds stripped for my media on a Server 2012 Essentials R2 setup. I am now getting buffer issues on most content. Not constantly but every 10 mins of so the loading circle comes up for about 5-10 seconds. This is with direct playing.

 

I am not sure if it is the OS overheads eating up resources (RAM at 65% most of the time) or if it is the NIC maybe? Any ideas?

If it's regularly coming up about every 10 minutes, I would look for an app or service that wakes up and does its thing on that schedule. This may be a situation where Mark Russinovich's SystInternals tools could be useful, particularly Process Explorer and Process Monitor.
