Packet loss when playing online gaming or watching anything.
Hi, I have been a virgin media customer for years now and have had a superhub for quite awhile. I use a laptop and online game regularly but lately I can't play anything properly as I would suffer packet loss, latency and frame drops. I've tried a number or things but no avail. I'm not extremely tech savvy but I would say my signal strength doesn't reach my room fairly well. I have tried to set up another router or even a wireless repeater but it made it worse. A number of months ago it was just fine to play online I suffered very little loss and I was quite happy to play wherever in the house.
I have also tried to connect an Ethernet cable to my laptop or run it in modem mode and I still had a loss, sometimes it froze or cut out connection completely. Could other people's WiFi signals be overlapping my own since I can pick up about 9 other networks but 30 are around 70% strength? Otherwise I really don't know what my problem is and I'm starting to lose hope in ever playing anything again.
