      FireTV + DDWRT WAP + Pfsense + BTOR Modem

      Hi Guys,

      Gosh I am soo glad I have taken your advice onboard and gone ahead with pfsense. I am having a difficulty though. For some strange reasons my Fire TV gets its wifi interrupted when watching netflix, prime or streaming a video through internet browser on the FireTV. The device is not rooted. does anyone have a clue? I have not touched the settings on pfsense nor have I messed about with the router's firewall.

      Please let me know as I have never had this problem with this using only DDWRT router in the past.

      Thanks for the reply. I have managed to fix it as I have noticed the problem also on my LG TV Netflix. it was due wifi channel being set to ht40. Amazon fire TV 2 does not like ht40 over 2.4GHZ. I have changed it to ht20 and it has been working fine.
