How to improve Wireless streaming?

Published on 2017-03-01
  • If possible, use a Wi-Fi N router. Wi-Fi N routers have the highest bandwidth for wireless

  • If possible, place your player and router in the same room

  • Allow as few obstructions as possible between your player and router. Obstructions can be walls, metallic objects, and reflective surfaces

  • Place your router and player about 1.5 meters above the floor. Sometimes this improves wireless performance

  • If a wall separates your player and router, place them less than five meters apart

  • When devices and routers share a wireless channel, the bandwidth is reduced. On your PC, scan your wireless network for other devices and routers. (You can use a free Wi-Fi network scanner from the Internet.) Configure your router to use a channel that is least used

  • If your router allows 20/40 channel bonding, use it

  • Keep cables away from the Wireless USB Adapter connected to your player

  • With the Wireless USB Adapter, use the supplied USB extender cable
