How is the DNS connect to your streaming devices? Via router or external Gb network switch?

Hey, the DNS is connected to a wireless router, and I'm playing content on an Amazon Fire TV stick (wirelessly).  Prior to the reformat, I didn't notice any buffering but we were getting some with some files last night.  I'm not sure if ext2 or ext3 would make a difference - as I understand it this would only affect write (not read) speeds, but I thought I would ask anyway.

THanks!

Has any changes in your environment been seen? i.e. router changes or wireless changes?
What wireless modes are you using with the Firestick?
Is the Firestick connecting to 2.4Ghz or 5Ghz?
What is the Mfr and model of the main host router?

No, there haven't been any changes except for reformatting the DNS disks.  I can check on the other items when I return home this evening.

There should not be any difference in performance between Ext2 and Ext3 formatted drives (there is a difference but it is in the security of the file structure and has nothing to do with how fast a file is read)

You say there is nothing changed on your network but since you are using wireless there could well be changes you are not aware of.  Unlike a wired network where you are in total control  a wireless network is very susceptible to outside influences - another wireless router or access point on the same channel as yours can, and will, cause interference which will cause packet loss requiring a resend and in many cases buffering.

We use WiFi Explorer from NutsaboutNets http://www.NutsAboutNets.com on an Android tablet to check channel use and free channel availability at clients sites.  This allows us to keep our clients on less congested channels.  If you use that app or something similar at home you could well find the source of your problem (note I said 'could well', channel interference seems the most likely problem but it might not be).

The Firestick is connecting at 2.4 Ghz.  The host router is an Actiontec C2000A-D.

What wireless modes and security mode and channel do you have currently set on the Actiontec?
