Re: Roku running slow compared to other internet devices

I'm not sure if wiring your Rokus will help or not. I've had some frustrations with my Ultra when it was connecting through Wi-Fi, especially with Netflix. I, then, bought a really beefy router (a Netgear X10 R9000) and that didn't eliminate the problem. Then, I wired Roku to the router and still ha...

Re: Roku Premier + buffering for Netflix

Just an update.  Wired my Roku and it performs a little better, but I'm still having issues with buffering on Netflix, a couple of times during a movie or a show. When I periodically check connection speed from Roku, it's showing wired Internet connection between 72Mbps and 78Mbps....plenty for HD ...

Re: Roku Premier + buffering for Netflix

Well, enabling QoS didn't really do anything. Wired it today. We'll see what happens now.

Re: Roku Premier + buffering for Netflix

Still a bit weird that it only happens with Netflix and not other Roku channels. Well, yes along with it is only an issue on wifi and not wired. But if WMM is disabled, your wifi is limited to 54Mbps on your router as far I recall. WMM was enabled on the router, but Dynamic QoS was not. Netgear cla...

Re: Roku Premier + buffering for Netflix

I used to have this same problem with an older Roku and only wiring it directly to the router fixed the issue. I hope I don't have to this time. Have you turned on WMM yet? Can't remember. Will check tonight. Good point though. Thank you Tajson! Still a bit weird that it only happens with Netflix a...

I have a Netgear X10, R9000 router that is very powerful and I'm about 30 feet away from it in a regular apartment. Again, this is onl...
