So - I had a chance to pick up a new Iogear wireless HDMI setup for a big discount, the goal being to be able to replace the long HDMI cables I’ve been using to connect my laptop to my AVR/TV in the den and bedroom. It was the Wirecutter pick, great reviews on Amazon. And it works perfectly, 1080p from the laptop to my AVR/TV with no stutters, etc. EXCEPT - when I have my Asus N66U router on. Then I get slight stutters in the sound and slight lines on the screen. If I unplug the router - perfect. Plug it back in - problem.
What is odd is out of the couple of hundred reviews on Amazon, no one else seems to have this problem. In fact, people talk about how this does NOT have interference problems with their router. I have tried switching from 2.4GHz to 5 GHz, swapped through all of the channels, lowered the TX power, and nothing seems to have any effect. I made sure the receiver was not right next to the router (though they are in the same bedroom) but no joy. Again, everyone else on Amazon claims no interference problems from their router.
Any ideas? I hate to return it, because I love the concept!
EDIT: When I use it in the den upstairs from the router, works perfectly. Argh! I need someway to shield it from my router when they are in the same room. :(
