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 ?
Setting up the Slingbox for Internet Viewing requires that you open a port in order to allow the Internet access. However, this process does not involve bandwidth comsuption.
Therefore, we recommend you to contact your ISP or router provider in order to determine if is there any setting to adjust on your router.
