Re: Horrible youtube speeds

New Gen3 Router arrived - hooked up. Tried base settings and DNS changes and even the Firewall solution:

Base Settings - Hulu and HBOGO streamed great, and even a few YouTube videos at 720p and 1080p buffered great.

DNS Changes - OpenDNS and Google DNS resulted in slightly better results of streaming from all sites, no noticeable difference with YouTube

Firewall Changes - Noticeable difference with YouTube, but not on all videos. Seems sporadic based on what video it is.

Don't forget what time of day it is. Traffic demand isn't as high at 10am compared to 8-midnight.
