    Is 300K router needed for Wi-Fi reception?


      I often am unable to connect thru WiFi when I try to watch on my phone at local businesses; 4G works fine. Does the WiFi source at the store have to be the same 300K that is required for setup of the Slingbox at home?

          Hello asonofsarek,

          Thanks for reaching out to us. We do appreciate it and are happy to help.  In regard to the speed that is needed, really depends on the type of Internet connection that local businesses use, as well as the amount of people that are using the open data at any given time.  Remember that if you are at a coffee house and you see 20 people sharing the same network, that could possibly bog down the WiFi.  We have a great article that will give you the Network speed requirements for SlingPlayer.


          Hope this helps!
