Amazon Fire TV Stick fix for Netflix

leave a comment »

I have an Amazon Fire TV Stick and over the past couple of days I’ve had buffering problems: about every 2-4 minutes the picture will pause, and I’ll see the little percentages flash by until it’s recaptured the signal or refilled the buffer, then it resumes and repeats.

It makes the picture unwatchable. My speed test showed that I get a 14.5 Mbps download speed, which should be ample. I tried the usual stuff: unplugging the Fire TV Stick for 30 seconds, then plugging it back in, and doing the same thing on the router. I finally called Netflix, and was quickly directed to this page.

I followed the steps and the problem cleared immediately. I’m passing along the fix in case any of you encounter such a problem.
