How do most of you who use Netflix Instant Play use it - over an ethernet cable or wirelessly? The reason I'm asking is that every time I try to watch something on my computer I get a message saying that my internet connection has slowed and Netflix is changing my connection so that my movie doesn't get interrupted again. However, I usually end up having to reload the page to get it to start up again, only to have it stop again. We have AT&T DSL as our internet provider. I've tried watching Instant Play stuff over a cable and via the wireless, but get the same results.

Does anyone else have any problems with it?

After doing some research, I've discovered that our maximum DSL speed is 6.0 Mbps. The standard speed for our cable provider is 8.0 Mbps with options for even faster service. Our Netflix Instant Play disc for the Wii will arrive today, so I think I'll make the switch to cable pretty soon. We couldn't even get through an entire YouTube video last night before the connection stopped.

6 Mbps? And the standard is 8?? That is extremely low, no wonder why you are having problems. I'm connected wirelessly and pulling in 54 Mbps!
