Home Network Help - throughput speed, Plex
I have a HTPC running plex server and PlayOn TV. I have a TP-Link SafeStream TL-R600VPN Gigabit Broadband router that is running cat6 cable to the HTPC and to a Roku premier+ connected to my TV.
The HTPC is a i7 core processor.
So, here is the problem, my video playing through Roku (pulling from the computer) pauses every now and then. It may pause for 2 seconds, 5 seconds, and then start right back. I checked my HTPC using the task manager and saw the throughput bounces around 6.5 Mbps and 4.5 Mbps. I really don't understand why this wouldn't be much higher.
I am decent with tech, but I don't really know about network parameters that would speed this up. Anything I am doing wrong or anything I should checking - or is this just the way it is?
Overall internet is fine (but this is all local). Any help is appreciated.
