Hi, I'm looking for a bit of advice. I'm finding that I'm getting lag spikes at various times throughout the day. Not sure what's causing it. Happening on various online multiplayer games and it's starting to get quite frustrating.
The Hub 3 is a cheap, commodity grade device with many faults, but my experience is that the old latency issues of the Puma chipset have been effectively quashed long ago - here's my Hub 3 connection on a good day:
The remaining latency spikes are primarily down to the nature of DOCSIS cable technology, and exist between the cable modem and the local CMTS, so buying your own router may well improve the mediocre wireless of the Hub 3, but it won't make any difference to the minimum underlying latency and spiking. If you're seeing a BQM worse than this, then chances are there's a connection or area problem.
