Router Problems

Hi
I have the Technicolor TG582n router provided by plusnet. I used to get ping problems before (like 1-2 second interruptions every minute), now the stuff has gone worse. I tried changing the settings, changing channels, setting game mode and other stuff like that, but it only got EVEN worse. I tried resetting the settings via the special button in the extremely laggy interface, however it did not help. Have a look at this:

Any suggestions or recipes (other then buying a different router)?
Oh yeah, and the event log is empty.

This looks more like the pattern I used to get. Everything alright, then  suddenly a drop.

Re: Router Problems

Have you tried updating the router to the latest firmware?
Wireless can be a bit hit and miss - particularly if there is some kind of interference.
