Connection issues

Hi my connection has been very unstable lately with lots of connection drops and slow speeds and having to restart the router to get the connection back. Here is a ping monitor from the last 2 and a half hours .

Re: Connection issues

Hi booty,
Not nice!  What were you doing whilst that was happening, as I can see it has been much better since 10pm.
Please post the information requested under the speed issues thread.

Re: Connection issues

Do your sons use P2P software? If so I suspect they have not restricted the upload speed and it's swamping the line.

No, they mainly just watch youtube and online gaming .

Re: Connection issues

The online gaming might be using P2P for updates.

Re: Connection issues

I can't see it being that as this problem only started a couple of weeks ago and i know when the games are to update as its on xbox that they play online.
