    Has anyone noticed very slow wifi on their hopper3?. My stream rate is 7.8mbs but all my other devices report 80 mbs or higher. I rebooted and also reset connection. I can stream hd most of the time but forget about 4k streams. I did notice the streams have a little sharper picture than Sat.

    Hooked ethernet to it and streaming speed is now 30mbs so fast enough for 4k.

    now it's time to play with your WiFi AP settings and functioning
    check if your AP's freq is not sharing with other devices/neighbor

    Matter of fact, mine has been severely faster then ever. I had a 4K OD DL at 316Mbps just now. Nominally in the 230's.

    It might be something with my mesh network so I connected my hopper to ethernet and I have a 158mbs connection now.
