Best results I've had is switching DNSs sometimes, unplugging the Roku & router, and then starting back up.
Was doing with OpenDNS and had two DNS servers working well then they went bunk.
Anyway, I read about a service called Namebench on Lifehacker which is just a small program and you install then it looks at your location and after a few minutes of testing spits out your optimal DNS servers based on speed.
I ran it, showed me that my OpenDNS servers were indeed not optimal and I switched to their recommended servers. Knock on wood I've been good for the last week.
If you're having streaming problems, I suggest you try the same. You can just google them and I'm sure it will come up.
Just thought I'd pass it along, as I know I've come to this forum in the past frustrated with streaming problems and hopefully this helps you out.

I do this everytime the roku reboots because of an update or a power failure at my house because the roku doesn't work well with auto set, for me anyway. I never have trouble after I force the stream. Give it a try.
