    Port forwarding lowers the streaming speed from 2000 to 1200 kbps

    Demodelight

      Hi

       

      I have just connected my Slingbox Pro to a new Sagem Fast 3564 router with 50/5 Mbit Internet connection.

       

      When streaming the signal with slingplayer over the internet i can reach 2000 Kbps.

       

      After I have forwarded the port 5001 in the router to the Slingbox IP address the speed has been lowered to max 1200 Kbps.

       

      I have tried changing the port on the slingbox to 443 & 80 and get the same result as with 5001.

       

      Every time i remove the portforwarding on any port the speed goes back up to 2000 Kbps

       

      I have tried opening the port manually, and also letting the Slingbox do it Automatically.

       

      How can the portforwarding take so much of the speed ?

       

      I only need the portforwarding to make my slingcatcher work.

       

      Have any one had a similar problem, and a solution to the problem ?

       

      Thanks
