Ethernet over powerline, connected to the TV with Cat 5. That's what I have done, and it's much more stable and reliable than WiFi for streaming.

 

 

 

 

Yep this sounds much, much more solid these days than early versions.

 

 

 

What sort of throughput speeds do you get with this?  On a par with wifi, or closer to Ethernet cable in practise?

 

 

 

Great solution given all TV's must have a power point handy.

That model of router has flaky WiFi on the older firmware, so update it. I just did this for a friend's router of the said model, WiFi connectivity went from frustrating to 'sweet'.


 

 

 

I have this modem/router on Vodafone and find the same thing.  Works great, when it works.

 

 

 

I believe I'm on the latest firmware version from Vodafone, but still have the issues.

I had a similar issue with this router and my LG TV. Turned out the default setting for DHCP was only 10 IP addresses and with phones, laptops, PC, Blu-Ray player etc all were used up so no more IP's to issue. I had to contact Vodafone to get the admin password to make the changes though :-)

10 IP addresses only? Wow what a joke!
