    I have a Linksys AC1900 Router

    My xbox 1 is wired into the router, My surface pro 3 is using wifi on 5ghz, I set my router to give priority to the Surface Pro3.

    My router is upstairs with my xbox 1. I am trying to stream the xbox one to my Surface Pro 3 that is downstairs with my computer desk.

    There is full bars of wireless connection. Also I have the Surface pro 3 plugged in for charging all time when trying to stream.

    But when I start stream test it barely passes the stream test or fails. Also if I start stream to play it will lag screen cutting out and I get notification of Network Quality Problems. and it will disconnect me.

    I tried using my PC to stream and it has no issues, yes it is wired in.

    But I was under the impression that I can stream to my Surface Pro 3 with no lag or very minimal, I cannot even load a game past the start screen and it disconnects me.

    I have a pretty decent router, with very good internet speed.

    If anyone can recommend what I might be able to do to fix the issue that would be great.

    I have not set up any port forwarding or static ip etc.

    Just the priority setting.

    Thanks!

    Sounds like a signal strength issue & it does tell you this,only way to test is move it next to the router & see what happens,you have to keep in mind wifi is affected by walls,metal,cordless phones & all manner of other stuff & simply blocks the signals it receives,it's also the most common complaint for updates on those with modded consoles (jtag or rgh 360),rule of thumb connect with wire as there's little or no dropped packets this can also be just ftp'ing stuff into an xbox using wireless there is always connection issues

    Your on a LAN so port forwarding won't be of use as it's meant for connections on WAN (web) side is my understanding
