Try changing the quality setting in your slingplayer to "Better" instead of "Auto" and see if you still have network issues.
I use slingbox to view tv in different rooms , so I have internet viewing disabled and yet I have netwrok issues when slingplayer is set to "Auto"
Based on my troubleshooting, I feel that when the quality in slingplayer is set to Auto it will try to optimize the streaming rate and within one minute it reaches around 4 Mbps and Slingbox solo starts having network problems and the network light starts blinking.
If I change the quality setting to "Better" instead of "Auto" the streaming rate stays at 3 Mbps and there are no network issue. When I change the quality setting to "Best" I have the same issue once the rate reaches aroung 4 Mbps.
Please try these tests, if you notice a similar behaviour, it could be bug in the the latest firmware on the slingbox as I never had this issue in the past and this issue started only after I reset my device recently during when the firmware got updated.
Note - When I replace slingbox solo with slingbox 500 there are no issues , even when I set the quality to "Auto" and I always get the "Best" streaming rate.
Thank you! I am going to give that a try.
