Xbox App on Windows keeps disconnecting during Streaming

Lately, whenever I've been streaming my Xbox to my laptop to play games (partly for my online work, partly for convenience), it keeps disconnecting the stream. Sometimes it can be more than an hour without it happening, sometimes it will happen multiple times within the space of a few minutes.

Just today I was recording something and in the space of half an hour it happened at least five times.

I have tried all the usual stuff (turning laptop, console, hub on and off, etc.) and it still happens.

Can anyone help?

How are you connecting the Xbone and laptop?

XOne and laptop are connected wirelessly. I've had no problems previously, only in the past week or so.

Re: Xbox App on Windows keeps disconnecting during Streaming

I would give a SEROUS amount of thought to wired or network over mains adapters especially if its mission critical (you mention its partly for work)

Or a high end router (check out the XBONE approved list) and HUB in modem mode.

In the meantime, sounds like someone has channels overlapping on Wi-Fi- or interference on the channel (especially if you are on 2,4Ghz). Have you gone through wireless troubleshooting? Or try InSSIDer

GET INSSIDER

After having tried that is it JUST wireless connections that drop? or wired too?

It's just this one connection. It happens mainly in the evenings (say, around tea time onwards).

Re: Xbox App on Windows keeps disconnecting during Streaming

Are both the Xbone and PC connected to the 5ghz network?

Yes. And both have now been tested while using wired connections. I used InSSIDer, and managed to get the connection to go a bit faster, but not solve the drop issue.

Did a wired connection stop the dropouts?

No. However last night I had no dropouts after changing my hub's channel. Might have been an overlapping channel.

Re: Xbox App on Windows keeps disconnecting during Streaming

I can see no logical reason why someone would want to do this in the first place, seems a pretty stupid feature in my opinion, there will most definitely be some sort of lag  compared to a tv or monitor
