Log into the router. Check for the number of DHCP leases.

Even if it's a good router, it's up to the user to secure properly. Similar to a car. It may be good... but if you don't lock the doors, people can enter and take what they like.

im not sure. i may have found the problem. i did a speed test in the tv web browser. i typed "speedtest". I ran 3 test on the page. they were all slow. not anywhere near to what my laptop PC is getting at 72mbps in "network and sharing".
TV web browser speed test were:
download upload
20.3 / 41.3
11.4 / 10.4
spectrum is my provider and came back at
28.5 / 10
my laptop PC spectrum test came back at
51.6 / 11.9
PC network and sharing is 72mbps.
the speed tests are not so good and all over the place.
im not sure but i think 28mbps should be enough to stream video.
so it looks like my TV web browser is too slow. so whats up with this? any suggestions on how to speed up the TV internet web browser?

Hummmm...It may be that the router is too far from the TV, or in another room maybe?

How close is the router to the TV? If in another room can you as a test move the TV or the router closer to each other?

And when I tested that site with my TV and network, my speeds were at 7 mbps down and 2 up. (that's all I can get out here in the boonies)

And I think that TV has a LAN port, can you as a test run a CAT5/6 cable to the TV as a direct connection test and then run another speed test.

If it improves then you may need to move the router closer to the TV, or run a direct CAT 5/6 connection.

If this is not possible then a WIFI booster/repeater, or stronger WIFI router may be needed.

I use these...

yep, that's it.. The router is too far. The router is in the living room and the TV is in my bedroom at about 20ft+ through a few walls.
I ran a wired ethernet cord then did another speed test. With the wired ethernet i got as much as 75-80mbps. Still had a few interruptions and lock up on that one website. Hmmm, i dunno why it still locks up. Did play better.
>>>>>>And when I tested that site with my TV and network, my speeds were at 7 mbps down and 2 up. (that's all I can get out here in the boonies) <<<<<<That's not too bad. I lived in the high desert boonies for awhile. I was lucky to get 5.2 kilobits on the DL. Forget streaming anything or upload. All it was good for was surfing and email. Anyway, thanks everybody. Looks like the router is too far and too many walls.
I have a little different setup this time. My last TV did not have a web browser. Was using Firestick on the HDMI. Worked good. No play issues. I got this TV because it has a web browser. I need to boost the signal so i don't have to run a long ethernet cord.

I think you may have more than one issue going on. You proved the wifi distance issue is one. The other is possibly on the REV'N server end.

I get several freezes when the audio keeps going. This can be caused by either the server or the player they use in the browser for their page.

I use the slingbox player to watch my daughter's u-verse on occasion and on the PC I get similar freezes. So, I noticed if I use a cell phone (via wifi) to watch her slingbox, it is solid as a rock. I bought a Microsoft P3Q-00001 Wireless Display Adapter from amazon ($38) to watch on my TV and watching a 3 hour program it was solid.

I think the reason for the difference id there is two slingbox server software platforms, one for PC and one for cell phones/tablets and I think they keep the cell software more updated.

Edit:
I watched a show on my cell through the wireless display adapter and the video freezes were almost completely gone compared to watching on the PC. I don't know if your TV video player could be an issue or just the REV'N server. If you are watching through the TV browser, it may act more like a PC.

I get the the same thing here. Both the PC and TV browser video will freeze. Audio will keep going a little then stop and freeze. The laptop HDMI plays a little better than the TV browser. The laptop will play and freeze a little then free up on its own. The TV not so good. Even with the wired ethernet cord the TV will play and freeze.
So it is in the website or server. The other idea i had was there was some kind of signal interruption in my area via satellite. I had a feeling it was the site or the server. This is the only site with play problems. Thanks for the reply. i guess that's just the way its going to be on this website.

Why would you think it's a satellite problem?? Is your ISP via satellite?

This is why I live so far away from the big city's, I also scan for unwanted signals, then have fun tracking them down.

The 2.5 GHz band used for routers is crammed full of junk, it can get to be quite a mess, thats where the WIFI scanning software for the PC comes in handy.

I also use an SDR device and software to scan for anything else.

Take a look at nooelec.com, their USB receivers can cover a ton of frequency's, (with the right options) this way you can spot the possible RF interference problem. (if there is one)

on the piggyback thing. If someone is piggybacking my wifi signal it is weak. 1 or 2 bars out of 5 bars outside the door. That's pretty weak. I have amped a TV and FM radio signals at the antenna with a mast mounted amp at the antenna. Can the same be done with a wifi amp and be usable outside my door at a neighbor next door or across the street?

With the right antennas and amps, I have done 2 miles from a router.

Do you have an equipment suggestion for this? Might be very helpful for other readers, including myself.
