I was wondering something.
Everyone here who has had problems with streaming Amazon/Netflix/etc... with starts and stops, how are connecting to the interent with either the BD-60/80/some other device?
I still say stay away from Wireless Bridges(unless you have no choice), and go with the Powerline adapters from either Belkin(I have these. 200Mbps MAX), or Linksys(I have never personally tried this pair) sold at Best Buy. The newer Belkin's(1000Mbps MAX) are now available for $150+tax.
The Linksys are the same price, but only do up to 200Mbps, which is more than enough for anyone. PLUS, there adapter has 4 OUT ports for multiple ethernet connections in one room(BD-80/XBOX 360/PS3/ROKU), as opposed to just ONE for the Belkin which would cause you to have to physicaly go and change it.
I only have a download, via Time warner Cable, max of 2.0Mbps, with an upload of 375kbps, and the Belkins I have work like a charm.
Amazon, I will admit, did/does have some sort of rebuffering issue, but not nearly the amount reported here(I have a BD-80). And Netflix, even though I can only get SD(broadband internet provider TWC GOUGES the crap at of people like me where I live because they are the only show in town, plus I live in a rural NW PA area. If I lived just outside of Pittsburgh, I am sure my bandwidth/cost ratio would be tremendously different) works PERFECTLY even with a 2.0Mbps download(usually runs at 1.93Mbps according to speedtest.net).
Rebuffering/dropouts are super rare at Netflix, so this also tells me that Amazon.com may be more of the problem than the connection setup, but I still say go this route if you can.
Or at least try it. Save the receipt/box/etc... and try it for 2-3 weeks. I think you will notice a major difference. You have 30 days in which to return it, if it is no better.
P.S. Also, have your broadband provider come out and check and see that there is nothing interfering with your broadband reception. I had to have a tech come out, because I kept on getting kicked off online, and could not figure out why. When I called TWC, they said they could "barely" get a reading on my location, so they sent someone out to look.
Turns out, all of my splitters had to be replaced, I guess because bleeding/noise/signal loss(these are my words, not there's), and after replacing them, that did the trick. Have not had a dropout since(3 months). Also, my house uses a combo of RG59 and RG-6 QUAD SHEILDED just so you know(input from cable box is RG59/underground, no doubt. House was built in 1987)
