Re: Ps4 jumpy

go buy yourself some power line network adapters that you can plug one in your your router down stair and one upstairs and plug a Network cable from the plug to your ps4 it will provide the Internet using your electrical wiring and should give you a much more reliable signal they are also quite cheap these days for a pair of them

Re: Ps4 jumpy

I would also recommend power line adapters rather than wireless to get less lag on the PS4.  Having said that it would be worth trying the PS4 directly connected to the hub via Ethernet before going to the expense of buying adapters, just to makes sure that it is not a line fault or the hub that is causing the problem.  If it works OK when directly connected then power line adapters is the way to go, if it is still lagging then there is no point buying adapters until the reason for the lag is established.
