Default Playing NAS-Resident Media Via USB-Ethernet?

Samsung Note N7000.

I am trying to troubleshoot stuttering in playback of 720 and 1080 video files.

My test file plays OK if I copy it to the external SD card, so I'm guessing it is not a matter of CPU capacity.

I'm thinking it is something to do with WiFi. 2ghz, G-only. When I connect via a Windows box, it claims 54 Mbps - although, in the past on my netbook I've seen higher numbers, like 125 Mbps.

To test the WiFi angle, I would like to turn WiFi off, connect to my PC via the USB-Ethernet cable, and then try playing the test file.

But it's not happening: MX File Manager seems unable to open the shares I have been using via WiFi.

Am I maybe misunderstanding the capabilities of the USB cable connection? i.e. Is it even capable of getting to my router via the PC it is connected to?

Or is this already a slam-dunk and WiFi is known tb incapable of handling HD video smoothly?
