Jessie (the poster, above) asked this question mid-November of last year! Someone from Sling needs to answer this one ASAP--or, link us to the answer if it already exists in a separate thread. This issue is SO ANNOYING!
Getting constantly disconnected (e.g., 4 times in 6 hours) while streaming ruins the experience. No one else can possibly be logging into my M1 (I'm the only person who knows the password to access it).
Additionally, I've spent a lot of time researching and trying to remedy the poor connectivity issues with the Slingbox M1 and its companion Android app. I've done everything:
1. Everything is connected via ethernet cables.
2. Assigned static IP addresses (using MAC addresses) for the M1 on one end and the Roku 3 I have on the other end.
3. Port forwarded 5301 on the respective routers.
4. Ensured that my upload and download speeds (at the M1 and at the Roku 3 ends, respectively), are WAY more than required (60 Mbs down / 4 Mbs up).
4. On and on and on....
