There is not much you can do about wireless bandwidth, apart from connect as many devices as possible using an Ethernet connection, and leave the wireless just for devices that have no LAN connection available.
The other alternative is to plug in an additional wireless access point, to split the load.
had this problem for a couple of weeks now and I can't figure it out. I bought an android tv box in September and it's been working fine until a few weeks ago. Every time I turned it on, my broadband speed went from 13Mb to less than 0.5 then returned to 13 the minute I turned the box off. My broadband light would flash orange most of the time when the box was on so I presumed that my router was faulty since it was about 7 years old. I have replaced it with a homehub 3 now and I'm having the exact same problem! I've done a factory reset on the android tv box and also on my new router but no luck. I have turned off smart wireless and I am wondering if anyone knows of any setting which could be making ths happen? The weird thing is, it's not like the box is getting all the bandwidth. It says it's connected to my wireless network yet menus etc take ages to load and I can't stream anything.
Any help would be much appreciated,
Thanks in advance 🙂
I have answered this question once already, but if its affecting your actual broadband, its possible causing interference, so make sure that the TV is nowhere near the home hub, or any other phone wiring. Make sure that the home hub is plugged into the master socket and not in an extension.
Some TV, especially if they are plasma one, are known to interfere with broadband.
hi. i have exactly the same problem.
the box seems to suck all the bandwith even if im not trying to play anything? it only allows other things to be used when the android box is turned off.
also the tv and video applications on the mxbox buffer really badly despite the decent speed of the bt broadband to the point where it is unusable.
Does anyone have an answer??
I'm a bit late to the party I know, but did this ever get resolved? I have a new MBox and am having the same problem no matter where I put it, internet bandwidth just falls off a cliff. Internal LAN speed doesn't seem to be affected as I can stream from my Plex server just fine. Wierd.
