I don't think my router, a 2012 Airport Extreme, can be blamed for my slow Netflix speeds on both the TiVo Bolt and Roku Premiere+'s Netflix clients. My Airport Extreme is 802.11n capable and I am using both hosts on a 5 Ghz network. Also, Netflix on mySony 940D TV's Netflix client gives me download speeds of in excess of 50 Mbps. The slow download speeds on the Roku's Netflix client, ~20bps, are particularlu frustrating because they are preventing me from getting UHD HDR quality from programs that have it, e.g. Iron Fist, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, et al. The Premiere+'s Amazon client gives me UHD HDR with no problems.
A bit of good news is in the offing, though. My IT contractor, from whom I bought almost all of my gear last summer is sending his tech and network specialist over to install an optical audio connection from my TV to my receiver and check out my network miseries. Sometimes, paying retail does have its advantages. Will report further when I know more. In any event, thanks to all for your advice about my UHD HDR problems with Netflix.
