Bufffering

I recently added 2 x 4K boxes.  One DVR and other was the smaller one connecting to internet via wireless or Ethernet.  The smaller box has the internet hardwired in but still starts buffering repeatedly which is annoying.  I didn't see any settings to adjust the network on the box. Is there anything I could do or should I just swap out the box?

that buffering says it is starving for data stream. move the router closer to it or run an Ethernet cable to the device (will have to reboot to use ethernet)

Like I stated it's been directly wired into the network since day one. So it was set up the way with a Ethernet connection.

Try rebooting both main box and gateway
