Slow and intermittent broadband

In the last few days, my broadband has been very slow with lag while gaming. Also, since the speed has been very slow, my NAT type is no longer open. Sometimes, the internet even completely goes offline, and have to restart several times to regain access. The gaming is not the only affected, browsing speed is very slow, where it is normally very fast. I also have a high speed network adapter (PCI) and it affects all devices. I will post the power levels etc as a reply as I can’t find the option to add images here. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Slow and intermittent broadband

use a CAT 7 cable. 

I know no one gets 10gps but it actually helps. I've tested it on PS4, testing my connection shows about 70mbps but the game play is so smooth (Playing WW2) and NAT type is always open.

Re: Slow and intermittent broadband

Thanks for the reply. However I recently spoke to VM and they said it was a bandwidth issue and there is too much traffic in the household so I guess we will consider Upgrading.
