My home Wi-Fi has been inconsistent lately. So I updated the firmware in my Linksys e2500 router and range extender 2000. Question 1: If I hardwire the Slingbox 500 to my router's Ethernet port, will this provide solid speed? Right now I get the full speed that I pay for on any device that is hardwire connected to my router's Ethernet ports. Question 2: Whenever the microwave oven is on, it creates a lot of interference on the Wi-Fi connected devices. This is not uncommon. If I go with the Ethernet cable connection to the Slingbox, am I still susceptible to interference from the microwave oven? My microwave is about 4 1/2 feet from my Slingbox with nothing in between. Because of the TV and cable box location, I cannot change this distance.
