I use an Amazon FireStick to stream TV in my bedroom. I have it attached to a 2.4g wireless extender. When watching shows, they will stop & start repeatedly during shows. I cleared the cache,data and re-started the Stick but the issue persists. Any suggestions for getting the shows to play uninterrupted?
Single-band Wi-Fi extenders always reduce your data speed by 50%, so they should be avoided. There are at least three possible ways to improve your WiFi streaming performance:
1. Move your router closer to the bedroom TV so there is no need for an extender,
2. Purchase a new extender and firestick that use the new 802.11AC high speed protocol on 5 GHz (yes, some firesticks DO run on 5 GHz!), or
3. Purchase a dual-band cross-band extender that works between your existing 2.4 GHz router and a new firestick on a 5 GHz channel.
You could also consider usimg an Ethernet over PowerLine adapter between your modem's present location and the TV in your bedroom.
