Hi, so I like to play games such as CSGO and LoL and when someone in my house is watching a Youtube video or sometimes using netflix the ping spikes to 500+ and is unplayable and really frustrating.
I believe I have the 75mbps package atm and was wondering if it should be like this? Is this a problem because of the package or is there something else wrong? Really wanting to fix this as it's super annoying when I'm trying to play and someone is watching netflix/youtube video.
If I get another router and put the superhub in modem mode and connect it and change the QoS settings, so that less bandwidth is used by youtube/netflix will that help lower the ping?
Yes you can do this but most simple routers don't give you IP based QoS they are just set the limit and it does its best and you will have to under limit the rate limit lower then your upto speed because of buffer back of course there are different ways some do QoS that may make you think why its not working. Then there is the available bandwidth for your upto limit which if the amount is under your set limit for your QoS then your subject to the QoS at VM gateway.
So QoS works but their can be lots to think about the biggest problem is the way non-live videos streams run which is they what to load a head of time a big chunk and this causing you to hit your upto limit and buffer but when that big chuck is done it only has to download small chunks of the stream at a rate that does not buffer your connection but when you seek/forward/backwards in the video you buffer again.
And QoS over wireless is a bigger problem one way around this is to have your own wireless access point to yourself.
I can't test a wired connection as it's not possible without buying the longest ethernet cable.
What powerline adapters would you recommend?
My end goal is to be able to have good enough ping to play online gaming even though someone is watching youtube or something. Currently if someone is watching youtube or netflix I am getting 400+ ping.
If you are wanting to game whilst people are streaming, as Legacy points out you are going to need a router with decent QOS features. You MAY find that a decent router with QOS will bring latency down sufficiently so that's the place to start.
