So I bought this Belkin N+ router from Costco today: http://bit.ly/6GCVhg
Didn't open a manual or use the included disc for anything. Just plugged in the cables and started using the internet. It used the same power adapter as the WRT54G which was sort of nice.
I get 108Mbps in my usual area which is nice. I get 12Mbps down, .5Mbps up, which is normal, even when connected through ethernet.
I still can't watch YouTube videos. It'll play maybe 3 seconds of a video and stop for maybe 5 seconds, then play again for a few more. Guess it's just my crappy ISP (Time Warner Cable).
So I just went ahead and tried to directly download a YouTube video, and I only get like 30KB/s down. Is it my ISP or YouTube? I think it's my ISP...
All of a sudden, all YouTube videos seem to be playing just fine, even HD ones. Coincidence?
