    Netflix Buffers too much

    Internet Connection: Verizon Wireless data card, connected to a wireless router.

    I realize that using wireless internet is inherently slow at times due to limits at the cell site.

    But.

    If I add an SD card to the Wii, would it buffer more of the movie to the SD card and not stop to buffer so much when watching a movie?

    It usually buffers 3 to 4 times a movie.

    I have searched and searched and not found that information anywhere.
    Thanks for any help or advice.

    Jamie

    If your internet connection speed fluctuates, you will end up with buffering. Netflix determines the best quality based on your speed when it loads the movie. If you connection slows down in the midst of a video, it will have to catch up, hence the rebuffering.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like adding an SD card will do nothing.
