I am tired of netflix grabbing all the speed of my internet connection... I wanted to know if there is any way I could limit the speed used by netflix or something similar. Please help. I am using Actiontec T1200 H.

Thank you.

You can change Netflix video quality settings on Netflix's website. That will reduce the bandwidth Netflix uses.


I've never had Netflix (multiple streams) or anything similar cause issues over wireless for me on any devices. How many computers / devices are you using and what device do you mainly use Netflix on? Do you just have Netflix running on one device? Also, what speed is your internet connection?

Also realize your Wi-Fi slows with distance from the gateway, and slows even more if there is interference from another Wi-Fi network nearby. I chose to hardwire my TV to prevent such problems.
