Linksys Wireless Router :: E1000 - Video Playback Is Very Choppy

Aug 28, 2012

I have an E1000 and the other day for the first time in quite a while I opened the Cisco software.  It said there was an update so I went ahead and installed it.  Since then streaming video has seemed choppy and thebuffer keeps needing to reload, even Netflix.  Could there be anything in the update that would have changed things? The video played with no issues before.  Another question, if a computer is using a direct, wired connection to the router, is that a straight connection from the modem or is the signal still sent through the modem hardware/software?

Linksys Wireless Router :: EA6500 Choppy Video Stream To Xbox360

Dec 13, 2012

I've been viewing some videos streamed through the EA6500 from a Qnap 419p II NAS, and several video files are playing back extremely choppy.I can confirm that the video files play fine on the Xbox360 using a USB key and have also previously streamed these videos without any problems using a Belkin Wireless Pre-N router (that I upgraded from) streamed from the same NAS.I've attempted to configure the Media Prioritization feature, but haven't noticed any different results. I have also adjusted other various settings that haven't affected the playback in any way.
My only guess is that some of the files are encoded in a format that the router is struggling with - the video files are not HD videos, and their bitrates are generally quite low - if my old Belkin router can do it, the EA6500 shouldn't have any problems either.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 Suddenly Choppy When Playing HD Video

Jan 14, 2012

I stream a lot of 720p HD video over my network (both local storage and Internet streaming). I bought the E2000 about 5-6 months ago after my last router stopped working, and it has been working flawlessly up until now.
So a few days ago, I was streaming a live basketball game, and noticed that all of a sudden, it would no longer stream at 3Mbps HD quality (or even 1.5Mbps or 800Kbps; I had to drop it to the lowest setting of 300Kbps to stream, and even then it was iffy). I thought...well, maybe this service is getting more popular, and they just need to fix their pipe.
Then, last night, I went to watch a locally-stored HD video (720p, around 4-5Mbps), which is something I've done almost everyday for the last six months with this router, and when I went to play it, the movie would play for maybe 4-6 minutes without any trouble, and then suddenly, it would just start stuttering (i.e. play 5-10 frames, freeze for 1/4 second, play, freeze, and repeat for the next 20-30 seconds of the movie). It would then play fine again for 5-10 minutes, and then suddenly do the same. It would repeat this process throughout the entire course of the movie.
Now, keep in mind, I've made NO changes to my setup, networking, Internet connection, or file server. I decided to bring up a network monitor to look at the connection while a video was playing, and this is the result: url...You can see the normal spikes of data transmission on the left and right of the graph, but then the connection just drops off in the middle. That exactly corresponds to where the video begins to get choppy. Then, when it starts to spike again, the movie beings playing smoothly.

 - I was running in mixed G/N mode, so I tried switching to N-only (only one of my computers has an N adapter, so this would not be ideal for the moment). No luck, still choppy.
- Tried restarting every single computer, including file server. Still choppy.
- Tried making sure the router wasn't overheating. We live in a cold region, I stuck it against a window that was 30 degrees F in temperature. Still choppy.
- I tried changing some of the packet size/frequency settings in the "Advanced" section of wireless setup, messed with the frequency, changed the channels, etc. Still choppy.
- I checked to make sure I have the latest firmware for the router, I do.
- Played with relocating all of my antennas and such, even putting them in unsightly places to make sure I'd get a strong signal. Still choppy.
I can't really think of anything else to try, and it's just so odd that this has worked without any trouble for months now. It has to be the wireless function on the router, because when I try streaming it with a wired connection, it works just fine. The ONLY difference I noticed (and I don't know when this happened) is that one of my neighbors set up an N-router, which hasn't been there before. They moved in maybe 1-2 months ago, so I'm guessing that the router has been around for that long, or slightly less...which perhaps could coincide with my timeline for this not working anymore. Could that be a possible issue, and if so...way around it (again, note I've already tried changing channels, etc. I can't run on 5.0GHz frequency because my adapter doesn't support it).

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Won't Allow Streaming Of Some Video Contents

Jan 8, 2012

I have just upgraded from an E1000 to the E3000 and have run into a couple of problems with my iphone 4s.There are a few applications, BBC iplayer, Sky Go, BBC News and ITV player that wont allow me to watch any of the online video through the iphone. I have iplayer on two other computers running through the same router and they work fine.Every thing worked fine with my old E1000 so I'm taking it that it must be a setting in the router itself somewhere that needs to be altered to allow it to work.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Streaming HDTV Media Through E4200 To TV?

Mar 5, 2012

Basically the problem is that the HD media steamed through the E4200 router has a significant lag on the TV. So details..I have the Linksys E4200 wifi router and want to stream the HD video from my computer to TV.The connection schema is pretty straightforward:Computer with 10/100 mbit network adapter-----(network cable)-->E4200----(WIFI)----->TV with 802.11n WIFI adapter.Also 10(ten) mbit Internet connection cable is plugged into WIFI router. The questions are:
1) Can the 10 mbit internet connection affect the speed of the media content being streamed through the E4200 router?
2) Does it make sense to buy the WIFI 802.11 n adapter and use it instead of the network adapter / cable in the connection schema mentioned above?
3) What can be other possible reasons of the lag?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Drops Connection When Streaming Movies

Aug 1, 2011

When we stream movies in two different rooms at the same time we drop our netflix or vudu connections. Can I enable or disable any settings on my router that would work. I love this router have 35 Mbps on internet speed so I don't think that is the problem. Range runs from 35 up to 45 Mbps all the time. I know how to access my router settings and navigate where to go and what to change if I can. I have 3 laptops, 1 wireless printer, two blue-ray devices attached.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Constant Reboots With Media Streaming

Dec 5, 2011

I upgraded my E3000 to a new E4200 several months ago.  I use an SSL VPN to connect to work which worked fine on 1.0.01 and 1.0.02 but I upgraded to 1.0.03 to fix an issue where the router constantly reboots when I stream Netflix or Hulu and now the router reboots with Netflix, Hulu AND the SSL VPN tunnel initiation.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Drops Network Shares WDTV Streaming

Jan 3, 2013

Basically I use the WDTV to stream movies from my PC and external harddrive (which is plugged straight into the router) to my TV. The WDTV has a "Network Shares" section and my PC and harddrive usually appear here.
The only way I can get them to show is to reboot the router each time I want to use the WDTV player.
Is there a setting on the router which I need to enable/disable which will prevent the network shares drop?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Movie Streaming Between Server And Popcorn Hour A110?

Oct 18, 2011

Got my E4200 a month ago, and have since been experiencing problems with movie streaming between my server and my Popcorn Hour A110. All kinds of movies stutters randomly and becomes unwatchable. Streaming of the same movie from my server to my laptop (connected wirelessly) causes no stuttering.
I have been doing some troubleshooting and determined that it is not the server's fault (it achieves transfer speeds of 60+ MB/s through Samba). I have also ruled out the possibility that the Popcorn Hour is the faulty component.
Lastly, I just tried switching from the E4200 to my old D-Link DIR-655. This has effectively removed the stuttering, leading me to conclude that it is the E4200's fault.

Linksys Wireless Router :: E1200 Bricked Due To Upgrading Firmware

Jan 3, 2012

I have a little problem with my new E1200. Before the E1200 I had a WRT160N that was bricked to death by a power surge due upgrading the firmware. Till that moment the WRT160N met al the required specs as told in the description..I have from my ISP a 40Mbit cable line and was always downloading at those speeds wired aswell as wireless...
Now with the E1200 I get the 40Mbit only wired... wireless it only allows it up to max. 20Mbit.I figured that I didn't do anything different than the Linksys I had before..I'm working with a MacBook from late 2007 running OSX Lion 10.7.2, Built-in AirPort Extreme card (802.11a/b/g/n)My wireless setting with a WP2 Personal Security Mode

Linksys Wireless Router :: E3000 Restoring Factory Defaults / Upgrading To Latest Firmware

Sep 16, 2010

I just upgraded to a E3000 from a WRT54G and I am having some issues with network speed.I have no special settings and have even tried restoring factory defaults and upgrading to the latest firmware to no avail.The time I notice the biggest hit is when transferring files locally on the network (WiFi and LAN).Let me note that I do know the difference between MB/s & Mb/s and the like.I have Comcast 20Mb/s Down, 1.5Mb/s Up (just a FYI, the main issue is local transfers)
With default settings my Laptop (ASUS N82JQ, Atheros AR9285 Wireless Network Adapter), connects to the router at only 65Mb/s (with full signal).Upload seems to be more decent ~600KB/s (Transferring files from wireless n laptop to the gigabit desktop).Download seems to be limited to ~150KB/s (Copying files from the wired gigabit desktop to the wireless n laptop).These speeds are horrible! ~5hrs to transfer 3GB of data!
One of my laptops had a card that was capable of both 2.4 & 5Ghz and I was previously getting ~2000-5000KB/s (2-5MB/s) transfers with this router (But I had to do a system restore on it and reset the router). My ASUS laptop seems to only work with 2.4Ghz though. If I change the 2.4Gh Wireless settings on the router to "Auto(20MHz or 40MHz)" the laptop will connect at 150Mb/s, but the speeds are the same slow speeds as above.

Wireless :: Poor HD Video Streaming?

Jan 3, 2013

Just got a new HD Smart TV and trying to stream Netflix and Youtube. Netflix works decent most of the time, buffering occasionally but Youtube buffers all the time and is not watchable. Using a Netgear WGT624 b/g router located some 60 feet away a half floor upstairs. Internet downstream speed is about 5.5 Mbps on the hard wired main computer and laptops show the same speed when connected wirelessly. Wireless Network Connection Status on a laptop close to the TV show "Very Good to Good" signal strength and Speed at 11 Mbps. Why is the Yotube connection so poor on the TV? The Netflix could be better too. Laptop by the TV streams Neflix and Yotube fine but of course that is not HD. Do I need an upgraded router or powerline network adapter?

Linksys Wired Router :: Upgrading Firmware BEFSR81 V3 On A Mac?

Mar 14, 2009

I'm trying to upgrade the firmware on my BEFSR81 v3 cable router (firmware version on a Mac.  I accessed the interface via Safari browser, followed the instructions, got a message saying not to interrupt the process, but it never completed.  So I tried it again (downloaded another copy of the firmware update), and same thing.  No choice but to interrupt it.  My internet connection seems to be working fine, but now I can't access the router via the browser.  I don't think the firmware actually updated.
Should I power down the router and then reset it?

Linksys Wireless Router :: E2000 PC Gets Choppy In 40 Mhz Mode

Jul 11, 2011

I have a e2000 router and a wmp600n wireless card in my desktop pc.  Everything works fine until I enable 40 mhz for faster speeds in the e2000 router.  When I do this the router switches from 20 mhz to 40 mhz and I get the faster speed.  But the effect of this is that my pc gets all "choppy".  What I mean is that everything freezes up every few sec.  For example when im minimizing windows, the windows freeze half way for about a sec then unfreezes.  My mouse does the same thing, even my sound is choppy.  I have to switch my router back to 20 mhz and then everything is fine again.
Using windows 7 64 bit

Using newest dirvers and firmware from Linksys.

HP Laptop DV2815EA - Wireless Adapter Cuts Out During Streaming Video

Sep 6, 2012

My computer is a HP Laptop Model Number DV2815EA running windows vista 32 bit. Its a few years old. Recently i have had problems with my wireless adapter turning itself off whenever i watch videos online. It doesn't happen all the time, but if i am watching something for more than an hour it will cut off. There is a blue light and a switch on the front of the laptop, and when the wireless adapter is off, the light changes to red.

The light will change to red sometimes whilst watching video, and the only way i can turn the wireless back on is if i restart the system. Even if i activate and disable the wireless adapter using the external manual switch, or the internal controls using the wireless assistant. Also, not sure if this is relevant but i can no longer either watch videos on full screen as the image gets jolty.

Things i have tried:

1) restoring the system to a previous restore point - i tried this but for some reason the only restore points i could find were ones dated after i started noticing the problem.

2) reinstalling the wireless adapter driver and video card driver.

3) running a full 6 hour antivirus scan - I am using Eset NOD32 antivirus and also i scanned using comodo cleaning essentials.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Download Source For E4200 V1.0.0 Firmware?

Aug 1, 2011

link to the original v1.0.0 firmware for the E4200.  That was the best firmware for me and sadly I can't find a link to go back.  v1.0.0 really had no problems for me.  I initially skipped v1.0.1 becuase it disabled IPv6 which is a feature I want.  v1.0.2 broke my YouTube and Netflix streaming.  So I went back to v1.0.1 and my Netflix and YouTubue steaming returned to normal but I lost IPv6.
Any solution to Netflix and YouTube streaming problem on v1.0.2 when IPv6 is configured.  (I'm positive the video is streaming over IPv4, but the IPv6 connectivity is available.)

Linksys Wireless Router :: E4200 Firmware 1.0.02 Blocking VPN Access?

Aug 6, 2011

I cannot connect to my company’s VPN after installing the current firmware (FW_E4200_1.0.02.013_US_20110524) on my E4200 router. Version 1.0.01 was on the router when I received it, and it worked without issues. As soon as I upgraded version 02, I could not initialize a VPN connection. When I try to start a VPN session, I get a "page not found" error when attempting to initiate SSL VPN service using a Microsoft Forefront Unified Access Gateway. VPN pass through is enabled for all protocols in the e4200’s setup. As soon as I revert to firmware 01, everything works fine again.
I did a fresh download and re-flashed the 02 firmware just to make sure that it wasn’t an issue with a bad download or a faulty flash. The problem is consistent and repeatable. I have upgraded and downgraded twice, and the results are exactly the same. My VPN connection works with firmware 01, and it fails with version 02. There is a something different in the 02 firmware that is blocking VPN access.
