Hi experts - I have a Slingbox HD hooked up on Verizon FIOS. My connections are:
- Fios Motorola Box to Slingbox
- Slingbox to Slinglink
- Slinglink to Verizon Fios Router (Actiontec, I believe MI424WR)
While everything works fine on the local network, it is not working properly from outside the network. I can succefully access the slingbox remotely, watch it for a period between 2 mins up to 15 mins, but then my connection speed goes down to 0kbs.
It is annoying, because I end up reconnecting over and over.
Port forwarding looks fine. I checked the router settings, and port 5001 is forwarded correctly.
I believe that the issue is in the router...this seems like a typical firewall shouting down ports.
For the SlingLinks, you can check the following links:
However, if the issue still the same, then you can bypass the SlingLinks and test the Slingbox connected directly to the router, also, you can discard any streaming restriction from your ISP also.
