WiFi speeds slow and high pings

Hi there,

 

*I'm not sure if this is the right place to write about this*

 

I've been having a strange problem with the WiFi performance and the router in general (Plusnet 2704n). I've the standard ADSL broadband package (not fibre).

Randomly the WiFi speeds and ping performance will drop considerably, making the internet almost unusable. The signal strength is perfectly fine, and it has same the performance even when testing this next to the router. The wired performance also seems to be affected slightly as well.

The problem seems to be fixed after I turn off the router and wait 30 seconds to turn it back on again. I initially thought it might be to do with peak time, however, this has happened even late at night or early morning (and doesn't stop till I reset the router).

The problem also seems to be more persistent now, and it seems very clear that the router is the cause of the problem.

 

Hope anybody can help with my issue.

 

Kind regards,

 

Dan

Here is the speed test when the problem occurs

This is the wired performance when the problem occurs (slight speed drop)
