I still have the Protection Plan on from the install - I was thinking of possibly getting a service call to work out some of these issues.  Would the protection plan cover this entirely or most of the cost?  Thanks.

With the protection plan it's like $15 I think? Without it's like a $100 service call.

DO you have uPNP enabled on your router ? if you don't enable and try again.

You CAN put antennas on your owned and/or controlled property...

Yes, I do have uPNP enabled on the router.  It is weird that I can stream to a tablet but can't to my PC.  Some handshake mustn't be taking place.  Anyway, now that I do have the tablet, streaming to my PC is no longer needed, but it would be nice to know what was going on.

Have you reset the IE on your laptop, maybe even downgrade/upgrade IE to fix program irregularities?


Other devices working and the laptop not, may point to problem with the laptop (spyware  or phantom settings killing the connection).
