DNS makes sense. As for the username/password, once entered it should be stored inside the add-on settings file. You can try to enter it manually via add-on settings and see if that helps.

Eventually the stream will return and continue for a while normally. I can go back to the Sling Windows 10 app outside of Kodi and it works without buffering. It seems especially bad with the new addon.  Does anyone else experience this? I have 3 machines and all are affected.
Buffering is what you are referring to. Once the add-on gets the stream url it hands it off to Inputstream Adaptive (automatically installed with the add-on if it wasn't before.) Each stream has multiple levels of quality, usually Inputstream Adaptive is pretty good at determining the best one for your connection speeds but if it isn't doing so then via settings for inputstream adaptive you can change "Stream Selection" from "Auto" to "Manual". Then once a stream starts, it will be at the lowest quality. From there you can bring up a menu, video options, and choose a stream quality that fits your connection speed. Unfortunately by setting this to manual you will need to pick the quality each time you play something. 

I don't think this is a problem in selecting the correct stream. Outside of Kodi, the Win10 Sling app works flawlessly at the max rate. Inside Kodi, it is highly variable and within 1 day, will buffer at least 30 times a day. How can this be a connection issue on the same machine when Kodi and the Sling addon are the only variables? 
I set Inputstream to manual and even on the lowest quality stream I still get buffering quite often. Am I the only one seeing this? I can drop out of Kodi and run the Sling app in Win10 and it's fine. I can replicate this on several machines.
