But some people concern that thinking it’s a tv built specifically for hotels. So you have to watch their channels or nothing.  Also, there wasn’t any way to hook up the HDMI to the TV( There weren’t any inputs on the TV at all. Holiday Inn. This could a bit big problem you may get.

Why your WiFi switch from 2.4ghz to 5ghz?

Recently, lots of people consult that why their Smart tv box cannot connect 5.0 GHz wifi, there is several saying as below: 1. The Android tv box does not support Dual-band wifi, that means that you tv box is not 2.4 GHz and 5.0 GHz wifi available. 2. Because those are two different bands, not just a pretty label. They give an answer, saying if you have a router that provides both bands, then just choose the 5ghz network. But if your router only has the one, there’s no reasonable way to upgrade it. Just a word of precaution, the unreasonable way costs far more than just buying a new router that does both bands. 3. If your android tv box with dual-band wifi and the router that provides both bands, but still can not convert 5ghz, then the possible problem is drop material or desoldering with the box, the machine should be repaired factory.

But there is another question like this, some people confused that why their WiFi switch from 2.4ghz to 5ghz?

There’s a number of reasons why your wifi router might be switching you from 2.4Ghz to 5Ghz. The nature of radio really leaves you at the mercy of the environment. If you have a large home with thick walls, lots of furniture, glass windows, distance from the router, etc.. all of these things can influence how your connection will be to your wireless router.

Most home wireless routers will automatically switch between 2.4GHz and 5Ghz and back again when it senses a weak connection and does this to try to improve the user experience.

Many home wireless routers have a way to disable this switching and allow you to assign an SSID to just 2.4Ghz and another SSID to the 5Ghz band. This can be fairly advanced so if this seems a bit too much for your comfort zone then leave the settings alone.

Another option is to experiment with the channel that your router is set to broadcast. Most routers, when you first turn them on, will scan the area looking for other wireless routers and what channels your neighbors are on. There are 11 channels reserved for 2.4Ghz in the US and 14 channels in Europe.

Many people opt to use the 5Ghz bands as it has less interference from neighboring routers, wireless telephones, etc. There are also more channels to choose from, and those channels can typically carry more traffic which means a fasters more stable connection.

One way to fix this problematic switching is to go to the manufacturer’s website and see if there are any updates to the firmware for your router. Sometimes a simple update is all that’s needed to fix your problem. NOTE: Most routers allow you to search for updates right from their configuration page. If it shows no updates are available to go out to the manufacturer’s website anyway and look for yourself.

One last thing to remember, it might not be your wifi router, it could be your client (meaning the laptop, or other connecting devices) trying to access the router. If this is an older device you might need to update its wireless driver or software.

If after all of this and its still bugging you-you might want to research getting yourself a new wireless router. There are some amazing new wireless routers that support new 4K T.V.’s, streaming media like Netflix, as well as console games. Check out reviews of new routers and see if this is a solution for you.

Every number has its own unique meaning. Why we name Kingbox K3? Some people may know that “Three“, it’s rooted stem from the meaning of multiplicity. Creative power; growth. “Three” is a moving forward of energy, overcoming duality, expression, manifestation, and synthesis. Three is the first number to which the meaning “all” was given. It is The Triad, being the number of the whole as it contains the beginning, a middle and an end.

Just as it includes the beginning, the middle, and an end, starting with the concept and technology of Leelbox, then Kingbox came out in the middle and ended of the outdated skills and ideas, K3 Android 7.1 TV Box 2GB Ram 16GB Rom Amlogic S912 Octa-core, as the leader leading Android tv box to the endless.


There is an ancient wisdom that says; ‘Messages or events that come in three’s are worth noticing. ‘Whenever anything is mentioned three times it is a witness to us that these things are of utmost importance.

Best choice! Leelbox Q2 pro with WiFi Keyboard

Today we see together the Android box Q2 Pro, produced by Leelbox, a company specialized in Android Box. Going to their HomePage you will also find many other models of Android Box and WiFi keyboard.
Together with the Android box, we will go to see the keyboard, always Leelbox, available here.


  • The packaging of the Q2 Pro Leelbox presents inside:
         Q2 Pro box Android
    power supply
    HDMI cable
    Remote controller
    User manual
  • Instead of the packaging of the keyboard we find:
    WiFi key (in the back next to the battery)
    Charging cable / OTG

The Android box Q2 Pro presents an operating system updated to version 6.0 Marshmallow, supported by 2GB of Ram DDR3 and 16Gb of internal memory.

Android_Box_(very similar features)_the_result_is_7/8_mb / s. Connected via ethernet20161212172432_32508


And now to try our Android Box, let’s see how it behaves.
The ignition is very fast, it comes on in just under 15 seconds from the power connection.
To connect the WiFi keyboard later, simply connect the USB stick and turn on the keyboard, it will be recognized in a few seconds.
As soon as we are on, we are in front of this HomePage:


At the top right, we have the classic settings menu of Android, the Play store to install all the apps we want (as if it were a smartphone), the favorite Apps that we can go to add us, the MediaPlayer to play movies, music, and images. Then we find My Apps with all the pre-installed apps and the ones we’re going to install, the classic default Browser, DailyUp and Clean Memory to clean the RAM with just one click.

Going to the settings and scrolling we find Language & input that allows us to set the box in the Language you want.

Going to the My Apps section we find an app called settings box, which allows us to set all the functions of the Box in a step by step way.

Android box

Among the various pre-installed apps, to report the presence of Netflix.

During web browsing, the device is fluid, both by testing with the browser and with Google Chrome installed by the Play store. Even the navigation between the menus is very fluid and does not present any kind of hitch.

The connection via WiFi is not very fast due to the rather low reception of WiFi that with a connection that on average makes 10Mb / s (using the Ookla speed test on Windows Pc) trying with the Box the result was only 5Mb / s, when with another Android Box (very similar features) the result is 7/8 mb / s. Connected via ethernet, of course, the result changes and we have a much more stable and fast connection, as a result of 9mb / s. (The distance from the modem is about 8 meters with a wall in between)

The use with Kodi does not present any kind of problem, the box is always fluid in turning between the various menus and has not given any kind of jamming, from this point of view is one of the best boxes on the market considering the price on 40 €.

Even the keyboard function very well without problems, even if the backlight is missing, which at night helps the display of the keys.


If you are looking for a smooth, stable Android Box with an intuitive menu, the Q2 Pro has all this. But if your modem is far enough away and you do not have a repeater or way to connect via cable, you will need to equip yourself.

All in all a great Box result, excellent for its fluidity and optimization that characterizes Leelbox in all its products.


Leelbox S912 Q3 Android tv box with some more pretensions!

In these weeks we tested the Leelbox Q3, the latest evolution of the Android TV Box Q series that we have already had the opportunity to thoroughly test with the Q2 Mini and Q2 Pro models. Leelbox Q3 improves in hardware, but perhaps not in performance, but doing of the price – as always in Leelbox products – one of his winning weapons!


Leelbox Q3: Unboxing

Compared to the Q2 series, the Leelbox Q3 has a more generous size, which translates into a larger but essentially identical sales package: much information on the various sides and an image of the TV Box on the front.

Also complete the equipment that includes, in addition to our Leelbox Q3, a guide to ‘use, an excellent remote control – full of functionality and universal – and then still an HDMI cable of about 1.5 m and the wall power supply.

Good quality of accessories, especially the remote control optimized for the use of a TV Box. Note of demerit instead, for only 90 cm of cable for the power supply, which will make it difficult for many people to position the TV Box!

Design & Specifications

With the Leelbox Q3, despite the increased size, you leave the small but comfortable display adopted on the Q2 in favor of a small LED status indicator on the front.

The back contains most of the inputs: Ethernet, HDMI, AV, power input, optical audio output (really rare) and two USB 2.0 standard. The latter, being placed both near and in the back, could be not very accessible in some cases.


Finally, on the right side, a slot allows the insertion of SD cards to expand the 16 GB of internal memory up to a maximum of 64GB! In this regard, we recommend that you use the 64GB MicroSD best suited for playing content in FullHD or even in 4K.

But let’s get to the specifications: the datasheet of the Leelbox Q3, compared to the Q2 Pro, has been updated and improved to find more reactivity and fluidity in the operations:


The Leelbox Q3 offers full multimedia with wide compatibility in audio/video formats and also thanks to the ability to decode video in 4K (UltraHD) and 3D. Obviously, the HDMI video output allows a maximum resolution of FullHD (1080i) which is, as seen from the video below, smooth and without jamming.

The colors are calibrated quite well (but not customizable) to be able to enjoy most of the content, with saturated tones without exaggeration. The audio sector is excellent, enriched by the optical input that allows you to enjoy audio systems 7.1 and beyond!

With the pre-installed apps then, the Leelbox Q3 is a TV Box ready for use: media player, KD Player, and Cloud TV to enjoy streaming content, Netflix and then more Music, Play Store and more.

Also noteworthy is CetusPlay – which we have already seen in the review of the Leelbox Q2 – with which you can completely control the TV Box via Wi-Fi with an app!

And if that was not enough, you can always buy a Leelbox wireless remote control, like the one you see in the photos, which thanks to the integrated touchpad makes the experience much smoother and more pleasant.


Conclusions & Price

Overall, therefore, the Leelbox Q3 should be interpreted not only as a TV Box that can turn a TV into a real smart TV but also something more thanks to the wide compatibility and the potential of a good sound system.

To take it home you do not even have to shell out a lot, given the approximately 55 euros requested by Leelbox.
