I have a slingbox pro hooked up at my parents house to a FIOS internet connection. I am viewing the slingbox on slingplayer at my house using a comcast internet connection. During the day, I can easily get 2000Kbps. In the evening, I get somewhere around 400-600kbps. I have read that comcast internet can slow down if there are many people using the network around the same time, so I'm wondering if this is the issue. However, if I do a speed test online,during the busy evening period, I show that I get well above the 2000kbps. So my question is, is there a way to allocate more of my bandwidth to the slingplayer so that it will look better?
