Bandwidth allocation issue

Hi, I'm having some issues with lag during streaming. I'm on a 5Ghz wifi channel and my download speed is above 15Mb/s, so the connection is stable and no packets should be lost. I've been using the auto detect feature on Shadow to select my bit rate, and it usually chooses 5Mbps for me. However, when I run a test on my Chromecast, I get a speed of 70Mbps. It seems like either Shadow or my router is not allocating enough bandwidth. Does anyone have any tips or suggestions for fixing this issue?
