Downloading first Windows Update for a Win 10 laptop. During downloading my Roku reception slowed to a crawl, constantly buffering. Is this normal?

Depending on your network, Yes. 

 

That's the bandwidth.

That's what I thought. I installed a Roku stick for streaming Sling tv this morning. Everything was fine. I'm setting up a new laptop that's downloading a Win 10 Cumulative update. Two hours in and 58% downloaded. Now Roku runs slowly on all channels. Just needed re-assurance that Windows Update could cause it. Thanks.

No Worries!

 

Same thing could happen if you have 3-4 devices streaming as well.

Good to know. I've got the laptop I'm on right now, the laptop that's downloading WU, an iPod, a smart tv with a Roku stick, as well as my android phone on the same wifi. Thanks again. The Windows Update is the big change that's soaking it up I think.
