Streaming HD content DD-WRT

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
First off I hope this is the right place to post this as I am not completely sure. Second I did a very quick search for my problem and didn't see anything about it. Last here is my problem I have a local network an E2000 running DD-WRT December 2010 version (Sorry I forget the exact number if needed I will look it up as the E2000 is not hooked up right now.) , Two computers: mine running Windows 8 Pro w/ Media Center x64 2500k 8Gb, the second running Windows 7 Pro x64 920(1366) 6GB, 1 xbox 360 slim(or the new version that has 120mm fan on the top), 3 android devices. I thought it might be the E2000 so I put back an old Linksys WRT54g v6 running DD-WRT 14929. I am trying to stream HD content on Netflix, Youtube, Gametrailers, and Twitch TV. if buffers forever the lower I set the quality the faster it loads. I called my ISP which is Cinegry Metronet and they claim it is on my side. I have tried everything I know of to see what it could be I switched routers out from an E2000 to a WRT54g, I tried pinging various sites, tracing various sites, checking for virus and spyware but the other computer can't stream HD content either and it's really starting to tick me off. Unfortunately for me I am the tech guy in my family so I have no one that I know to ask for help expect for you fine folks here at overclock.net. If I missed anything I'll reply back as soon as possible with information. I am sorry for the wall of text.

Unfortunately I don't have any way to hook directly up to the ISP cable. That is something I really wanted to try but the cables are in a weird place and are hard to get to. I have tried a speed test on each router. I have 20 Mb/s down 10 Mb/s up and that is what I am getting on each router.

Can you borrow a laptop to connect to the modem directly?

Are the two main computers connected to the router/s by wifi or by lan cable?

The two main computers are connected by cables. I don't know of anybody that has a laptop that I can borrow for tonight. I also pinged the E2000 for a good 10 minutes with the largest packet ping would let me send. At the end it was up to 5 ms time and occasionally it would request time out. But it would do it 1 out of 100 times. So maybe it is the router?

Log in to your Modem and Hit reset, then hit Reboot.

Try different/newer LAN/CAT cables.

Move one of your PC's for test purposes next to Modem and connect directly in to modem.


If its a Cable modem, then you should have Cable out lets in every room. Move the modem and the computer to one of the rooms.

Unfortunately its a Fiber Optic so no modem to speak of or at least that I know how to get to. I have no other cables to try. I really don't want to move a whole big pc to the point of where the fiber optics come in. Thank you for helping though.


Edit: Funny thing is now at 11:30 pm EST I can stream in HD at least in youtube and on Twitch. So is it just time based then?

Edit2: Nope tried another video at 720p slow to load not fast loading like the last video I loaded.

Go to RadioShack, Lowes, Home Depot, Best Buy, etc and get a Cat5/6 Female to Female RJ45 Inline Coupler.

Then at router, take the Wan cable from Modem, and connect the WAN cable to LAN cable from your PC using Inline Coupler. This will give you direct connection to your PC from the modem.

E2000.. Broadcom + DD-WRT.. theres your problem. Need a build number for your DD-WRT version.. what I can say right now on any DD-WRT router, if it has it, set TCP congestion control to Westwood, Westwood functions at the kernel level unlike the rest its better all around.. Depending on things you may also want to consider Tomato (Toastman/RAF/Shibby ONLY) as well.. or look at an Atheros router as they are like the Core 2's.. & Broadcom is like the Pentium 4's.. While that is true this is still assuming your ISP isn't dumb like most & there really is no routing/saturation/throttling problem..

I have 15962 on the router because that what was suggested on the forums under the Peacock Thread-FAQ: EVERYTHING you NEED to know! Really!! I'll try setting it to Westwood. Funny thing is it's not mentioned anywhere on the forums or the faqs for the router. Don't know much about Tomato heard of it that's about it
