Im trying to stream my TV through slingbox.com. My older sony viao can stream with no problems in full HD and the site indicates that the bandwidth quality is excellent. However, i have 2 brand new HP's that can hardly stream even on poor picture quality and the bandwidth quality states that it is poor. i have no idea why one computer can stream flawlessly and 2 others can not at all. all 3 are hardwired in have >i5 8GB RAM and brand new hard drives. Any help??

Could be a router problem, could be a cable problem, could even be computer problem !


You say the Vaio works very well - so unplug the cable from the back of it and plug it into one of your HPs and see what happens. If it starts to work as you would expect, then the problem is with either your cables or the ethernet sockets on the router. If of course, it doesn't work any better on the cable normally connected to the Vaio then the problem is internal to the HPs. Then the first place I would look is at the installed ethernet drivers and see if there are any updates for them.
