I've had Roku HD for about 1 month wirelessly connected to AT&T U-Verse broadband. I get 22+ Mb/s consistently on downloads, and video streaming works perfectly most of the time (Amazon, Netflix mostly). But every other day or so I either get a long delay when selecting a video, then interruptions every few minutes (with the 'downloading' message) or I get the message saying Roku can't connect to the local network. While doing this, I have nothing else running off the broadband network - 2 PC's connected, but not being used, and my phones are on regular landlines. Powering down the Router (2-Wire 3800HGV-B) clears the problems - till the next time! Any suggestions on what's causing or how to fix this problem?
Note: My set up does not allow easy wired connection between the Roku and my Internet box.

Thanks for pointing me to this. I've dowloaded and am running inSSIDer 2.0 - very interesting! There was quite a bit of interference. I have switched from auto channel select to a fixed channel that seemed to have the lowest activity - I will see how that impacts Roku performance and report back in a couple of days. Thanks again!
I did indeed find quite a bit of interference with my 2Wire box set to 'auto' for channel selection. I set channel selection to the most interference-free channel and have had 5 days of trouble free Roku streaming through my U- Verse set up! Thanks for the advice!
