This topic applies to Android devices only.
When you connect to your Streamer computer with an HD tablet device and Android v3.2 installed (such as Moto Xoom), you'll probably get disconnected every couple of minutes. Here are some things we have learned about this problem so far: (only on some routers like Belkin...)
It only happens on Android v3.2. Android v3.0 and v3.1 work fine.
It only happens if you use a Dynamic IP address assigned by DHCP from your router.
Concerning which IP address, Gateway, Subnet mask, DNS1, DNS2 should be input, it depends on your router. Here is some information about getting it from your PC if it connects to the same router as your tablet: http://portforward.com/networking/static-win7.htm
If you are experiencing frequent disconnections but the above does not apply to you or does not solve your problem, please let us know the details related to your situation.
