What's up with Sony Internet streaming SMP-N200?

This is my third unit and and I am about to return it to a local store. I have high-speed Internet and the time to wait to get to Pandora or Netflix is unacceptable.

Streaming waiting time is extremely long that I did fall off sleep a few times. Why would Sony put their name on such a POS Internet streaming device?

The Apple TV on the other hand is made in heaven when comparing to the Sony. Fast, very fast...Thank you, Steve Jobs.
I am having similar issues with my Sony media streamer, same model. it keeps telling me I have internet issues, yet my Android phone, my iPad, and my laptop can all stream netflix without issue from the same room. I have an old tube TV in here, that's why I bought the Sony, apple TV would require HDMI compatibility.
