wifi & slowdowns

I am no expert on networks so i need to ask a question .
I have a unlimited fibre connnection and i get a steady 72 down , 17 up with my netgear wnr1000v3 , and very rarely heve problems , except i get slowdowns during most evenings my speed never alters just web page load times slow down and gameing is affected .
My main PC is wired , but my son has a laptop which is on mostly evenings , i also have my TV wired to my router alto used rarely at night for iplayer etc.
the question is would either the TV or Laptop likely to be the cause of the slowdowns ?
if it is how do i set up the router QOS to limit the bandwidth if i need to .
Or is it unlikely that this is the problem , the laptop is mostly on FBook not downloading .
Cheers in advance  Wink

Re: wifi & slowdowns

Hey rongtw,
Can I just double check, are you all seeing slowdowns at peak times, regardless of the device you're using? Would it be possible to test it, by just using the PC that's wired for 5-10 minutes to see if the issue is local or not?

Re: wifi & slowdowns

I'm not aware of any works that might affect this to be honest.
Is this something that happens every evening without fail? I'm just trying to build up a good picture so I have something to take away Smiley

Do you have a TBB Graph? If not would you be able to set one up?
