Stuff I learned today
Man, I have learned some stuff today on my Playbook.
First of all, I found out that I can set my PB to 5.0GHz and Wireless N. I had it set to the default of dual band and it always connected at 2.4GHz before. I got a new Cisco E4200 and it lets me setup the 5GHz network as Wireless N only and the 2.4GHz as mixed. So, I changed the PB to 5.0GHz only, and sure enough, I was able to connect to the 5GHz Wireless N ssid. Pretty cool.
Second of all, I found out that I could setup QoS on my E4200 by putting in the MAC address of the PB. I don't have quantifiable stats, but it seems to help me with streaming video/data to the PB, such as splashtop and tversity.
Speaking of streaming, I had some issues with splashtop that I think I've worked out. I was trying to stream netflix via splashtop and it would drop my connection from the PC after a short period of time. I found and updated the splashtop streamer on the PC side and that seems to have fixed that problem. I also realized that I need to set netflix to not stream in HD to get a better connection. I found I can also stream slingbox from the PC via splashtop if I set the bandwidth to minimal.
