    Switching from Slinglink to Direct connection

    jafant

      I have a slingbox solo hooked up wirelessly through a slinglink to my router.It works pretty well most times but I sometimes have problems streaming the video to my iphone. I am planning on running a direct cat 6 cable to my router to try to improve the steaming. Will I have to change any settings or can I just replace the slinglink with the direct connection?

          The Slinglink is not wireless.  It transmits the Slingbox signal through your home electrical wiring system.  That is unless you have a device I am not aware of.  Anyway, if this is what you have, I doubt a cat5 cable connection will change anything, but it might.  You shouldn't need to change anything, just plug it in.
