Re: Ping spikes and intermittent youtube buffering issue

Hi manzir95,

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

My apologies you are experiencing high pings and buffering issues.

 

Looking at your connection, there is a high peak time traffic fault in your area which can cause slow speeds and issues with latency/ping times. The reference number is F004106196 and has a review date of 5th April.

 

I know you mentioned that the router is downstairs and you are using a wireless connection, however are you able to complete ping tests/trace routes whilst wired outside peak hours for us to take a look at please?

 

Let us know how you get on

Sam

Re: Ping spikes and intermittent youtube buffering issue

Wish it were possible but there's no way for me to connect wired, the computer is upstairs and the router is down and you say there's a traffic fault in my area does that mean I'm entitled to the credit people recieve when they have a traffic fault?

Re: Ping spikes and intermittent youtube buffering issue

Done and btw I done the ping test on wired network and its the same inconsistent times jumping between 35ms and 70ms, exactly the same as wifi so not a wireless issue

Getting worse ping spikes than before now, this time I'm getting some packet loss as well at the same times everyday http://www.thinkbroadband.com/ping/share/aac430ad3ead3db325f3097873cffccf.html
