I wasn't trying to offend you. It's never safe to assume anyone has tried anything around here. I've lost count of the number of people who've reported issues that were fixed simply by unplugging and replugging the device.

Never had an issue with Netflix, Amazon VOD, Flixster, etc... I updated to 2.8 Friday night. It would not reconnect to wireless router (using DLink DIR-655 with N speed). I tried several router/modem power cycle sequences with power cycles on Roku box. Left it unplugged overnight and Saturday morning it finally connected when I powered up.
Now every video channel has extremely long buffer time and then it rebuffers every 10-20 seconds. After a couple re-buffers, it drops the quality down to 2 dots but it still rebuffers every 20 seconds. I am quite network savvy and have run several speed tests from 2 other wireless devices on my network. No problems. I had just watched an HD Netflix stream 2 hours before I updated to 2.8. Now nothing is watchable.
2.8 update definitely messed up the Roku XDS wireless functionality on my device. I went from having no issues and being able to stream really nice HD quality video to not being able to watch anything (unless you want to watch a buffer bar come up every 20 seconds).
The location of my Roku box makes it difficult to run a Cat5 cable to it to try a wired connection. The wireless N connection has been fine before the update. It also seems others have had similar issues since the update.
Oh well, I guess I will try Roku's support. If it doesn't get resolved I will be forced to try a different streaming solution.
