I'm on 10.10.2.

I wonder if Homesharing is the difference? You mentioned that it works from your laptop but not your workstation. Are they both on the same Homesharing credentials?

15.8 Mb down and 5.9Mb up here in UK provinces via BT fibre. Virgin Fibre can get you to 150Mb download in London, not sure what the upload speeds can reach.

5.1GB x 1024 = 5,222.4 MB (convert GB to MB)
5,222.4 MB x 8 = 41,779.2 Mb (convert MBytes to Mbits)
41,779.2 / 2 =...

That's an interesting perspective, and a very credible one. Most of today's youth seem to idolise musicians, sportsmen and reality-TV 'stars'. They tend to like their bling.

Normal service has resumed with my n-band network. I suspect the resets of the three routers was probably the determining factor. I had a power trip yesterday morning so that might have caused them...

I've tried rebooting all my iOS devices, as well as my Time Capsule and the two Airports I use as extenders. I'll see how they perform tomorrow (I get poorer signal in my home office).

I use iTunes Match and it works perfectly for me. If I buy music from iTunes or rip a CD to my Mac Mini it appears on my iPhone within minutes if I am at home, no further intervention required.
