Diana, have you noticed any disruption in service for other electronics you have that connect to the internet? Anything else in your house connecting wirelessly to your router?
Nope. No problems with internet whatsoever. Our laptops are fine, iPad is fine. My son's streaming Samsung player is working normally.
Going with the upgrade in service anyway, b/c my son's player experiences too much buffering. At $4.22/mo. it won't bankrupt us.
I tend to agree with all posts here - there is network interference. Nothing on our roof to cause this. So, it is either via a neighbor or among the devices in our house. I have laptop, 2 Rokus. Son has laptop, iPad, Samsung streaming player. So, that's 6 devices.
I use a static IP address 192.168.1.8 b/c I was getting IP conflict message popup all the time. I've told my son to set up static IP addresses for his laptop and iPad, but he hasn't done this, yet. So, I occasionally even get the popup on 192.168.1.8, as well.
Noticed last night when I did the tests Shawn asked me to do, one Roku was using 192.168.1.3, the other 192.168.1.6. I had been on .6 a lot before I set the static IP. Could be my son's devices are on .3 and .6 and the problem lies there.
When TW guy gets here next week, we'll talk about this. Need a third party to tell him. He doesn't like to listen to Mom.
