Re: Amazon Fire

The Amazon Fire is restricted to a maximum of 100Mbps, as it isn't gigabit but fast ethernet.  However, 100Mbps is far more than adequate for streaming so won't be the issue.

Could you have a faulty cable between your Amazon Fire and router ? - I can't think of anything else ? - Or maybe plug it into a different port in your router in case that is faulty.

Re: Amazon Fire

Have you tried running a speed test from the Amazon Fire (if it gives you the option of doing this) or from another wired device on your home network ? - It would be interesting to see what speeds you are currently getting on your connection.
