      New router makes BBCi Player pixelated/glitchey

      Hi all.
      I have just changed my supplied sky segem modem router to a new belkin N modem router in the hope I can get more coverage. ,

      all is well apart from the fact that I used to watch bbc I player on my mobile phone. With the new belkin modem router it has become very pixelated/blotchey /funny colours and poor to watch.

      Any one have any Ideas?????????

      thank you

      Tried the channels. nothing chnges. the belking router seems to be blocking things everywhere.
      why would this be?
      i have now gone back to segam. but the range is so much less. why does the belkin stop things?? any one else use a belkin N wireless modem router???

      You will only get the full advantage of an draft N router if your adapters/phone are also draft N.

      But I dont understand why its stopping I player from working. It works fine on my sky router with W715 mobile phone.
      As soon as I swap and use the belkin thing, iplayer just buffers and wont play and if I try to access my inbox via google - that also says communication error. Yet the rest of the web works.
