BQM looks fine.

What is the actual problem - and does it occur if you connect on an ethernet cable or just on wifi? What package you on?

What happens when you connect devices on ethernet cable when the wifi connections drop, do they drop at the same time - if you dont know - can you test it.

What Hub model is it (see base sticker) and what are its various lights showing/doing at these times?

Re: Lag spikes every couple of seconds only while playing pc

So apart from ping spikes in the BQM - what are the actual issues you are seeing when you "game".

I dont follow why you cant use ethernet with a Hub3 - why can you not - distance from the Hub ?

PS4 on wifi in the same room is fine - what about when in other rooms?

If that is flaky then lt seems to be pointing towards a a wifi only issue.

The game becomes unplayable and everything stops ping goes above 900 during the spikes for a couple of secs then it goes to normal for around half a minute then repeat

Distance

Ps4 is fine all rooms and my pc which is laptop works good downstairs

My room is upstairs router downstairs

If it works fine on ethernet - then you need a better router - The VM hubs are decent modems but lousy routers!
