    @Warren Kong? Circle2 uses about 1 to 1.5 Mbps of your _upload_ bandwidth depending on how complex the motion is. While you may have 18Mbps _download_ you most likely have much less upload. Try going to www.speedtest.net and see what it reports.

     

    To have your Circle camera use less bandwidth, lower the resolution to 720p or 360p.

    My internet plan is rated at 18Mbps down and 768k-1.5Mbps up. It's usually less than 1 upload speed. Does that mean I don't have enough upload bandwidth so it's killing my download bandwidth?

    @Warren Kong? That is correct. Due to the way the underlying Internet works, if you saturate your upload, it effects your download, and vice-versa. In your case, due to your limited upload speed, I would set the camera to 360p resolution. That won't use all of your upload bandwidth.
