Streaming HD content DD-WRT - Page 2

post #11 of 13
Here is the thing.

DD-WRT, Tomato, etc.. wont make your or any router x10 better. Yes, you do get a tad bit more performance out of your router hardware wise, simply because the firmware was tuned for each router. But at the end of the day, performance is still limited by hardware.

The goal of 3rd party firmares, is to give you more options and more control over your router, options that EOM firmware has not given you.


In DD-WRT firmware, got to NAT/QoS. And enable or disable UpNp and see if that helps.
Enable or Disable Qos and see if that helps.


Are you running any Firewall softwares on your PC?
Disable Av software.


Try this CMD command using Admin privileges.

netsh interface tcp set global autotuning=disabled

I installed DD-WRT on this router because the Upnp wasn't working. I have Upnp enable on this router for the xbox 360. I haven't tried QoS. I don't have a firewall becasue I am careful of what websites I go to. I really don't want to disable my Anti-virus just on the off chance something happens. I might try the command. Funny thing is about 1 AM my time I started streaming HD content again. I think it might have something to do with networks like Youtube and Netflix. Or my ISP is throttling but they say they aren't. I just don't know at this point of time. I also could have a setting not tweaked right some place. So it's anybody's guess as to what it is.

Ive never heard of your ISP, and it could be true that they dont throttle your speed. Lets say they do not in this case of the argument.

Youtube on the other hand, gets extremely busy between dinner time and midnight, thats when every child and adult watches videos on youtube. Thus most of time your only choice is to watch videos at 360i. Unless you hit refresh button 5 times in the row.

Netflix has a back bone network of its own that should be able to stream videos at any hour. I have no experience with Netflix, so i cant say if they have same network load issues as youtube.


Test Netflix at 10am, 4pm, 9pm, 2am. If you see a difference, then there is an issue with Netflix and mix with your ISP, as your ISP has to go through various backbones of other networks.
