    Can I connect to my slingbox without going through my  router?

    exbadger

      I use my slingbox only at home to watch Cable on my PC in my office.  I want to get the fastest possible connection.  I hooked up my slingbox and my PC to the same switch.  It seems though that all of the slingbox traffic goes like this:

      slingbox -->  switch --> router --> switch --> PC

       

      Instead, I want it to go:

      slingbox --> switch --> PC

       

      Is there anyway to configure the slingbox so that it knows the MAC address of my PC so that all traffic does not go through the router.

       

      (In case you think I am crazy, I have a lot of traffic through my router and I think it is slowing down my PC to slingbox speed.)
