I currently have a Cisco Valet+ router which served my needs just fine until I got my new Panasonic VT50. I purchased Amazon Prime and am now streaming TV and Movies fairly regulary. About 50% of the time I get lots of buffering or am told that I don't have the bandwidth to download the HD version and get bumped to SD.
My question is if I upgrade my router to something "better" (Linksys EA4500 or similar) will that help my situation even though my internet speed from my ISP will reamain the same? I don't want to upgrade my internet speed if I don't have to ($$$!!!)
Second question, would I get faster downloads if I hardwired the TV to the router and skip the wireless signal all together?
Thanks in advance for your help!
