I've had my Slingbox Pro HD for a few years. I thought there was something wrong with my Slingbox when it continually would lose a network connection. Trying to troubleshoot, I thought I would simplify the network path and see if there was an issue there instead. Here is the original path:
Netgear Gigabit Switch (in office network closet) -> Asus Gigabit Switch (in living room) -> Slingbox ProHD
I also have a Roku and a Tivo connected to the Asus Gigabit Switch which have never had an issue streaming content. Still, I thought I would connect the Slingbox directly to the Netgear Gigabit Switch instead. Since then, no network issues! Bad news is that I still need a switch in the living room so that I can use my Tivo and Roku. Does anyone have any suggestions or recommendations?
