Problem with streaming live tv

I have problems streaming live tv and movies from video club.
Movie will start and stop every 2 seconds, same with the live tv.
You would think that this is due to a slow internet speed,but it's not.
My internet speed is over 40mbs download and close too 5mbs upload.
When i test tthe internet connection on the mag 250 device it is showing me speed of 4.5 mbs.
And mag 250 is connected to the internet modem with wired connection so there is no way that I'm losing internet speed because of connection.
Pleas help me!
I don't see anybody else complaining about this so I'm wondering what's wrong with my box.

I have exactly the same issue.

Fast.com and speedtest.net show 12 - 13 MB/s download Mag254 box shows speeds which vary between 800kB/s and 6.8 Mb/s

The MAG254 is wired to the router port. When the video starts freezing the Mag box is showing low speeds when all other devices say the internet speed is normal.

Anyone any idea what causes this speed issue ?

I have the same issue here...I'm connected LAN wired to the MAG254 box and I get super slow internet speeds, my provider (R...s) is usually reliable, on my laptop I get speeds of 150mbps....but on my box Wired I get only 15.8mbps? I cannot believe that nobody has found a fix yet? Was this due to the firmware update? I'm on r19 now.
