Slingbox via wireless lags


Slingbox via wireless lags

I just bought an R7000 - AC1900 due to my 4 year old TP-Link TL-WR1043ND router was needing daily power cycles for the Wireless to keep alive. Well prior to my new purchase I was enjoying connections to my Slingbox that resides in another country and it worked flawless without lag on all my wired and wireless systems including iPhone's and iPad, but now with this new router it's unwatchable over wireless due to lag. I turned off QOS up & downstreaming as well as WMM, but this appears to have had no effect on improving the lag and it remains unwatchable over wireless. Interestingly I can connect via wired PC's fine with no lag , as well as to other Internet based streaming video such as Youtube fine over wireless.

Re: Slingbox via wireless lags

A couple of questions.

Did you update the firmware?

If you did, did you do a reset to factory defaults after installing the new firmware?

It is very important to do a reset to factory defaults after a firmware update and it would probably be a good idea to also do the reset before installing the Firmware.

Now make your setting changes and you should be good to go.

Let us know how things work out.
