I wish i had waited a week more for this deal before buying a used one from ebay. Anyway, it works really well having it connected to the EE Brightbox 2 using the supplied cable and my laptop connected using 5ghz wifi placed upstairs. I tried Mortal Combat and Call of Duty Infinite Warfare for half an hour.
Nope. It require the same hardware whether streaming through WiFi or LAN. Works perfectly through LAN. Works fine hardwired on Ryzen 5, AMD FX and an Intel Xeon PC. The WiFi stutters despite me having over 60mbs on my WiFi at the far end. My WiFi is clearly just not stable enough.
It works perfectly for me, both for 1080p games and streaming bt sport (wired to the router and using home plugs).. My gaming pc is on the opposite side of the house. If you use it on flaky WiFi I expect you're gonna have a bad time.
Yeah, that's basically all it's for - streaming to another display, but if you're close enough to use a HDMI cable then you don't need it. Some people run long HDMI cables through the house for an extra display, but the Steam Link has the added advantage of being able to connect to controllers via USB and Bluetooth, which is more convenient and has better compatibility than also running USB extenders through the house.
Thanks I just find that on steam forum. No need for me as I renting a room and everything is in one place . Thanks
