You selected the issue: What is your network configuration?

Before continuing, enable the performance overlay.

You can tell whether the network is causing problems with your stream by going to the advanced streaming client settings and enabling the performance overlay. You can do this from the Steam Link settings before you stream, from Big Picture settings after you start streaming, or from the Steam overlay while in a game.

While streaming, press F6 or Start+Y to bring up the performance graph, and look for large spikes in the cyan line. This indicates highly variable network time, which is the main indicator of streaming network issues. These will usually coincide with video stuttering or freezing.
