I have a slingbox pro hd and cannot connect in hotel room. Message says internet connection too slow but I am connected by wire. Any ideas
Maybe...your internet connection is too slow.
even with a wired connection?
Many hotels are known to use load balancers to limit bandwidth to rooms.
It must be pretty slow though.
That has nothing to do with it. Wired or wireless is about your WIFI connection. This error message is talking about your internet upload speed wherever your Slingbox is located or your internet download speed at the hotel where you are located.
That stinks because that is the reason I got the slingbox as I spend 3 weeks a month in hotels.
I travel a lot too and yes you find some hotels are better than others.
I found one hotel chain in Tokyo that simply port blocks abut another hotel I can stream as fast as I want.
Maybe it's time for you to change to a different hotel.
