I recently bought a Roku XDS, and it is connected to my wireless network. I activated debugging so I could see the speed of the connection the Roku is recieving. I'm only getting 0.9-1.5mbps, which translates to 2-3 dots of video quality.
I'm running Cox High Speed Cable, and I ran a speed test on a wired desktop computer, and it said my download speed was 26.9mbps. I'm assuming the probem is my wireless router, since the wired connection is running way faster than the roku is recieving. I'm currently using a Wireless-G router, cisco WRT54G2. The roku is about 20' away from the router, with 1 wall in between.
How can I boost my download speeds and video quality wirelessly for the Roku?
I was thinking of updating my router, should I get a standard wireless-N router? Or should I spring for the Dual band wireless-N router, since I have the XDS and it supports dual band N? Will it make much of a difference? If so, any recommendations for specific routers that you're using?
Or, are there wireless settings that I should change with my current router to improve the speed?
