Orbi RBK50 Spectrum App Buffering and Freezing FIXED (NOT Armor)

Activate IPv6. This has completely and absolutely corrected all buffering and freezing with the Spectrum App on Roku for me. I don't know why the techs at several corporations were unable to sort this out.

If you activate IPv6, and your ISP does not support it, it will cause issues, unless you use 3rd party DNS. There are several to choose from. So when activating IPv6, on the Ipv6 setup page, enter the primary and secondary third party DNS servers. Then you can run tests to see if it is actually working or not.

This is specifically in reference to Spectrum, and Spectrum supports it.
