Post subject:  MSS Ex490 started streaming came to a stop

Heya guys, so a quick overview of my home network.

-EX490 MSS with an E8400 and 4gig ram, 8tb of storage. Connected to my E4200 router via ethernet.
-XBMC upstairs on a raspberry pi, connected to network via wifi.
-Desktop in my office upstairs connected to network via wifi.
-30Mbps down, 5 up.

As I was trying to load up a show yesterday afternoon, the XBMC previews took a while to load and when I choose my would load for a while and eventually show the buffering icon and barely play.

I checked my laptops and tower, nothing was downloading from the internet. No windows updates, no torrents but just as I was about to look away, I noticed that the HP MSS icon on my desktop taskbar was blue. It was about 45% complete running a backup.

I shut off my tower and waited, XBMC video was still buffering. I shut off the server, restarted XBMC and everything resumed as it should.

This got me thinking...why would this happen? XBMC goes to my router, gets out to the internet and brings home the packets for my chosen show. While the ex490 was trying to backup my desktop...why would it impact my wifi network?

Any ideas?
