I have a slingbox solo at home and am trying to increase the streaming rate (thinking of getting a slingbox hd). Currently the MAX it with stream at is 1mb/s but that is rare. Most of the time it varies between 500-800 kbs. The minimum recommended streaming rate is 1.5mbs. This happends anywhere i go and from any computer so the problem definately lies at my home. (actually have two slingbox's at home and both have roughly the same speed.... But i am never connected to both at the same time).
At home I have a Scientific American dpc1200 cable modem which i have never to my knowledge updated the firmware (actually am very confused as to how to do this if i need to). Connected to that is an airport extream which broadcasts wirelessly to the rest of the house with multiple expresses boosting the signal throughout house. I have my slingbox connected to a airport express. All other software/firmware except for the modem are up to date.
The weird part is when I do an upload test i get at roughly 6mbs upload speed yet when i use slingbox i am only streaming around (as stated above) 650kbs.
Thank you for your help,
