Hi @Mosesluke23 

Thanks for posting and welcome to the community.

Sorry to hear of the issues with the broadband, as a gamer myself I appreciate the inconvenience caused. 

You do from a system check need a tech visit, this is because the attentuation levels on the upstream channels are out of spec.

I will send you a PM now to book this in.

Kind regards
