    ISP issues? SB mentioned he liked NetFlix better than his PS3 stream. So must be working fine with others.

    Do you have an issue streaming netflix to your computer?

    Well apple tv is a Bigger monitor/TV then a laptop, and it's probably better quality

    usually to fix this issue start then pause the movie for 5-15min and let it load/download to the device, then play it because the load is now far ahead of what your watching there should be no lag

    EDIT: the iPhone does this sometimes for me on 3G I pause it for 1-3min and I'm good

    Yeah I would say pause go make dinner comeback and your good, it's cause wireless can be slower then straight Ethernet depending on your setup, if it happens in the middle pause it use the restroom and come back and your good

    You could always go get a new wireless-n router, they aren't that much these days. It'll give your iphone and ipad (maybe only one of the 2, not certain) a bit faster wifi connection too.
