Right, I have checked the wifi connection at work and I am downloading at 2.4Mbps, yet it still stutters and stops.
I have turned off the wifi on the Iphone and tried the slingbox on 3G and the results are excellent. Great picture, no break up and 3 green lights!
Therefore, I assume I am having a download issue rather than upload problems. I will try my Ipad app on this wifi and report back the results. My thinking is the Ipad has a better wireless adapter.
If that fails, I will try another wireless network and see what that yields.
If not, off to customer support I go!
I tried the iPad at work on the broadband connection and on HQ it stuttered every second. I turned the setting down to SQ and it paused every 15 seconds.
I reset the sling box and re-installed it and re-configured the port forwarding but exactly the same results.
Neither app work properly. It is completely unwatchable
No replies on this forum neither
This is an issue with the Wireless network at work, it could be the security or a restriction. You already know that the upload speed is not a problem since you are able to connect fine using the 3G network. Take a look at this link, this will help you to connect to the Slingbox using the WAN IP and not the Slingbox ID, sometimes this works.
You can get the WAN IP at your Slingbox location just accessing this 3rd party web site, http://www.whatismyip.com/. The port number should be 5001.
I hope this helps
Sorry for the delay in posting my reply but I wanted to give this a very thorough test, which included trying it on different wireless networks. Unfortunately my sky hd box froze when I went to try it in another location so that ruined that opportunity.
Anyway, I connected through the wan ip as mentioned in an earlier post of yours and that has allowed me to run it in low res on the works wifi. So that is a result of sorts.
Eventually I was able to try this briefly on another wireless network and that network allowed me to view in high res which seemed to be pretty stable for the couple of minutes I watched it. A great result!
Therefore I am happy to say the problems seem to have been resolved. I must admit I never thought in a month of Sunday's that this would work. What do I know!?
Thanks for your input and support.
