3 VERY IMPORTANT EASY STEPS TO DO BEFORE ANYTHING


BEFORE ORDERING OR TROUBLESHOOTING ISSUES PLEASE GO THROUGH THESE 3 IMPORTANT STEPS


1: YOU NEED TO CHECK THE SPEED OF YOUR INTERNET

  • You need at the very minimum 5Mbps however, We HIGHLY Recommend 15Mbit to 100Mbit these speeds & higher will give you much faster & smoother playback of ALL Content especially 1080p HD Content!

  • RUN the SPEEDTEST @ FAST.COM
    (make sure your connected to your WIFI and NOT your CELLUAR/MOBILE companies 3G or LTE)


2: CHECK WITH YOUR INTERNET PROVIDER FOR THE MONTHLY TRAFFIC LIMITS

  • YOU NEED A MINIMUM OF 80GB Bandwidth per month However We HIGHLY Recommend getting UNLIMITED Bandwidth!!
    Most major ISP's now provide unlimited service for a small additional fee each month. If the ISP is refusing to upgrade you to unlimited or are charging you exorbitant rates then Google independent Broadband Internet Providers there are TONS of small providers that are WAY Cheaper then the 'MAJOR' ISP's and most offer UNLIMITED! These companies tend to not spend millions on advertisements like the big providers thus lowering your monthly internet bills!      


3: CHECKOUT YOUR MODEM & ROUTER

A WIRED ETHERNET CONNECTION TO YOUR ROUTER WILL ALWAYS PROVIDE FASTER MORE RELIABLE STREAMING THEN WIRELESS WILL EVER PROVIDE!
(yes cables are ugly but 1080P HD CONTENT is BEAUTIFUL!)


    1. The easiest way get the model number (on the front or bottom of the router) & google the model number if the router is 5 years old or over its time for a new router (you can request one from your provider at no cost)  or eBay, Kijiji or at the local computer / electronic store!

    2. We recommend familiarizing yourself with your networking hardware, a $20 - $50 router upgrade can provide you with much faster speeds, much better wireless coverage & additional network security.  All that said you can use an older slower router if you would like, but just know if you are having playback issues, buffering problems or network disconnects then its time to get yourself a new router!

    3. PLACEMENT of a WIRELESS ROUTER makes a HUGE difference as well. If there is lots of concrete/steel in the floors & walls or cordless phones throughout the house it can drastically effect WiFi Signal quality/speeds. Newer Wireless AC Routers REALLY IMPROVE WiFi Connections!!

    4. But HANDS DOWN the BEST(also the cheapest & quickest solution) is to connect the NINJA Media Streamer to the router with a WIRED Network Cable(Ethernet) You can even use an OLD router, no need to update!!  WIRED Connections provide the fastest most reliable connection to the internet for streaming media.

    5. 99% of our support tickets track back to a SLOW Internet connection, Low-quality Wireless routers or wireless in general.  WIRED Connections are superior especially when streaming massive 1080p & 4K Movies & Shows!!!


    Now That you are a Broadband Provider & Networking Hardware Pro it is time to start enjoying Entertainment on Your Terms!!
