is there a solution to the bandwidth hogging CC? i have 30mbps and my internet literally become unusable when someone is using chromecast to stream netflix/youtube. all my webpages dont show up, thats how bad it is. im also on xfinity and MUST use their router since i have phone and cable. the router wont let me change any settings.
You shouldn't have that problem with streaming to the Chromecast. Even HD video streaming wouldn't take up a fraction of your internet bandwidth. For example a Netflix HD stream takes about 5.5 mbps. We routinely stream internet video to the Chromecast while downloading and browsing web pages on a 16 mbps connection, and there is no interruption to the video stream nor any delay in loading web pages.
Are the devices you are using for web browsing on WiFi? If so then WiFi bandwidth is more likely to be the problem. In that case you might need to move your xfinity router or invest in a better router of your own.
All the other devices are running on wifi. Actually im the only one browsing the internet while cc is being used. Internet becomes unusable, webpage wont load. The router is closer to me than to the cc. I cannot invest in a different router because noone makes routers that use phone and cable together thats why im forced to use ****ty comcast router.
