I have a question and if not applicable here please point me in the right direction.

We are in the process of getting fibre installed in our complex - lekker - I plan to get a 20 mbps line.

I rent out the flat in front of me (10 meters away max) and would like to know if I got a decent wifi router could I share the internet connection with the tenants and would 20 mbps be sufficient for both of us to stream at the same time.

I would say yes.

It would depend if there is already fibre in the complex - if there is then easy - if not then you will need a fibre provider to come and role out fibre in the complex which can be major hassles.

Regarding the sharing - you can do that but might need to setup some dedicated wifi equipment - home wifi access points are generally not very strong if it has to go through 2 walls on your side and then 10m and then say 2 walls again at the flat it is not going to work.

You get wifi setups that can run for many many kilometers as long as they have line of sight - if your home router also has line of sight to the flat it should work as well.

All possible but I would set it up with some sort of Bandwidth limits,
With no limits nothing stops the tenants from hogging all the bandwidth and leaving you with a slow connection waiting for all sorts of thing sot download or stream

Thank you for the help guys.

Is this overkill? https://www.takealot.com/ubiquiti-nanobeam-m5-hp-16db-poe-dish/PLID33054444?gclid=Cj0KCQjwttbWBRDyARIsAN8zhbJQqIQPfuArJ-zkHe2B9uVnzZHdKULnT75tuK4RZiXgme0nbWL4a8MaAut2EALw_wcB

I will most likely ask for help setting up bandwidth limits as I was not even aware one could do that - smart idea that!

You will have to adjust the output power to the lowest setting, at 10m the units will scream each other to death. Rather look at the Loco M5's

Funny my brother is running one of those on his desktop and have not had any issues.

But I guess you get good ones and crap ones.

I would personally run a lan cable to the flat and then place a router inside the flat.  I tried using WiFi streaming and it gave me lots of issues. the 2.4GHz band is used a lot. if you can install 5Ghz equipment. I installed 2 LAN cables one to my room and one to the tv room I only have a 4mbs line and we stream very well. Sometimes when the kids watch u tube and we stream we buffer a lot.

I have not had dealings with fibre but if it is full 20mbs you will have a good connection.
I LOVE RIDING

Yes they are nice.  Friend imported a few and I am getting one from him. Was expecting more interest.

Very nice boxes.
I have 2 h96 pro + boxes,  which are higher spec,  but they're not as good as these.

I have my Giga tv, often the remote does not work, i have to take out the batteries and re- install it to switch on the tv, is is really a struggle,are there anything on the market that can perform better like apple tv ? Apple tv does not have an app for dstv streaming, so that one is out,i also used my Pc but it is a sclep to use with keyboard and mouse, anyone that can steer me in the right direction?
Sorry if this question was raised previously.

I am so stressed out, my raspberry pi with Kodi and covenant stopped working. when I want to watch movies it gives me no streams available. when I watch some series I get streams and can watch it. I reloaded kodi and covenant

What is very strange is usually I get more than a 100 streams when I watch a series but now I get 5.

Do you think it could be that my IP/ Mack is being blocked by the servers.

Will a VPN work, I tried hooking up to windblocker but their servers keep rejecting me, it seems that you can only use a paid vpn on kodi

I also tried to load Netflix but it seems that you need an IT degree to run Netflix from the raspberry pi. None of the repo's I downloaded worked and the only solution seems to be to load Rasbian and chrome with only Netflix

I need a solution that will not be very expensive, I don't have moola to buy a tv box currently.

I LOVE RIDING

The exact same thing you describe happened to me. I changed to Neptune rising and that sorted out my issue.

Also make sure you are on the latest version of Kodi.

You can also load the Israel repository and then get their covenant add on. These are all things I tried that got me sorted in the past.

As manta said, mske sure you are up to date with at least:

Kodi
Your addons of choice
Movie Scrapers
URL Resolve

The links and servers change all the time and you need to keep the resolvers up to date.
