How to enjoy streaming content with wireless projection
Build a stable Wi-Fi environment

Video streaming requires higher bandwidth; avoid using the Wi-Fi router with multiple users simultaneously.

more

Video streaming requires higher bandwidth, so you are suggested to set your router to 5G network; avoid using low bandwidth channel of 2.4G that can be interfered by other electrical appliances. Place your projector and router in the same area, otherwise maximize your Wi-Fi router’s transmit power to 100%, or purchase a router with higher transmit power.

Avoid using the Wi-Fi router with multiple users simultaneously as it may slow down the network speed.

*Some countries or regions may prohibit civilian devices from using certain Wi-Fi channels owing to security concern. As BenQ projectors comply with the local regulations, certain Wi-Fi routers may not be found on specific channels, so you are suggested to use 5G CH36~CH48 (Band 1).
