How do you buffer movies so it doesn t stop every 2-3 seconds


Usually buffering occurs when your internet provider cannot keep up with the streaming speed. If the connection to the internet is via a hard wired LAN cable, the problem may be because of a lot of traffic.

First solution is to reboot your cable modem and router

Another cause would be that the internet pathway between your TV and the streaming source, which has many node points may not be a fast one. The usual solution is to reestablish the connection . This may involve logging out and logging back in.

If your connection to the internet is by WiFi, the usual problem is that your wireless router is not fast enough and must be replaced by an updated and faster wireless router

\I wish to start up Netflix on my TV


Do you own a smart tv or a streaming device like a Ruko, a blu-ray player with streaming capabilities, or a xbox or other gaming console with streaming feature?... Also you need high speed internet with a downstream speed of 15Mbps or greater for streaming video in HD, an updated modem and a and very fast router running at least 300Mbps or greater. IMO. This works for me.

I have a Roku 2, live in the country and am trying to play a movie. It keeps stopping a reloading. what is wrong or what can I do?


Roku is an excellent streaming media player, but is ultimately limited by the delivery rate of your ISP's (Internet Service Provider's) continuous download speeds, used for streaming over the internet. ( Check what kind of speeds you're getting...) Go to http://www.speedtest.net/ and click on "Begin Test" There are a number of websites you can use to check your connection speed to see if this is the source of the issue.
Most often, a slow connection, (under 300kbps) will cause the issues you've described. The slower the connection, the bigger the problem. This is most observable on Roku channels that don't detect, or compensate for slower connections, especially at high definition streaming rates.
( 720 High-Def streams work well above 1.5Mbps download rates, and 5Mbps is recommended as good rate for 1080 viewing)
At just under 3Mbps over DSL, we're able to watch two movies at the same time, in different rooms, on Netfix, at 720. I've heard that some people are experiencing issues watching just one movie delivered with a cable modem... Not sure what's going on there?
Some Roku Channels are better than others at delivering the best possible viewing experience. Some use poor compression technologies, or only deliver a 1080 Definition image. Using the best compression technology, detecting best streaming rate, etc... are where the most successful Roku channels come in.
Netflix for instance attempts to detect the optimum streaming rates for slower speed connections, and automatically compensates by reducing image definition when needed.
You might try selecting a lower definition for your display from the settings menu on your Roku device... I've seen some improvement with loading issues, by choosing a lower definition display for your television, even though you might be using a high-def television.

Why do Netflix movies keep stopping?


It could possibly be a slow internet connection speed. Netflix posted requirements. This is a good site to check your speed. http://www.speedtest.net/ Internet Connection Speed Recommendations Below are the Internet download speed recommendations per stream for playing movies and TV shows through Netflix.
  • 0.5 Megabits per second - Required broadband connection speed
  • 1.5 Megabits per second - Recommended broadband connection speed
  • 3.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for SD quality
  • 5.0 Megabits per second - Recommended for HD quality
  • 25 Megabits per second - Recommended for Ultra HD quality
HD Video Quality
Movies and TV shows we have available in high definition will play in 720p or better with a fast enough internet connection. To watch Netflix in HD, ensure you have a HD plan, then set your video quality setting to High in the Playback Settings for your account.
Netflix Bandwidth Usage
Higher quality video uses more bandwidth than lower-quality video. If your service provider applies a bandwidth or data cap to your Internet service, you canManage Bandwidth Usage by changing the video quality settings to Low or Medium to consume less data.

Power cycle my 2 Wire modem frequently


Sounds like you need to call your ISP - let me guess - Rogers or ATT - and tell them you need them to reset you and also find out what your speed is supposed to be. You may have birds or a nest somewhere out side.

Problems with connecting to internet with Linksys WRT300N


Hi Beluis,

Go to Start>Run, type in CMD. In the black box that opens, type in IPCONFIG /ALL. Look at your IP, Gateway, and DNS settings.
IP should be 192.168.1.xxx, Gateway IIP should be 192.168.1.1
DNS should have numbers, but they may vary. If they are not in those parameters, you won't be able to access the router. Let us know if these are right.
The router wiill give you an IP, and Gateway, with no DNS, and that will stop your from accessing the internet.
Shut down that modem, router, and your PC, Make sure your ethernet cable goes from your modem to the WAN, (not LAN!) port. Power up the modem, wait a full 2 min, power up the router, wait a full 2 min, and start up your PC. Try the IPCONFIG again.

Good Luck.
