Streaming turns off wifi


so every time I try to stream something via my Foxtel box the nbn stops working and I have to reset my modem.  I can stream all other services via my smart TVs. Anyone have any ideas?

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Re: Streaming turns off wifi

Next time it happens, try disconnecting the Foxtel box, rather than resetting the modem?


I am guessing your Foxtel box is connected by Wi-Fi? try an ethernet cable instead, temporarily, to see if the issue continues to occur..


There might be an issue with Wi-Fi between the modem and the Foxtel box (IQ?)


If your Foxtel box is an IQ2, be aware that On Demand is no longer available through the IQ2 or earlier...
