Today, more than ever before, we stay connected with friends, family, and co-workers online. We entertain ourselves by streaming our favorite TV shows and movies. Computers are integral to how we interact with the world, and all too often our computers are busy with email, Microsoft updates, and other software downloads.  These updates consume your networking bandwidth and cause stuttering video and poor video resolution.  Usually it is not your computer’s CPU or GPU causing the problem – it is your networking.All around the world, networking has become the bottleneck that prevents us from having great communication and entertainment experiences. If our computers get overloaded with data from downloads or other networked applications then our online video experiences suffer. We’ve all experienced the frustration of trying to watch an online video, only to have it freeze and stutter.  Even after it buffers and starts playing again, it is often hard to enjoy because we worry about when it will freeze next.
