Ping spikes and intermittent youtube buffering issue
Got virgin media recently and im getting alot of ping spikes when i try and ping any website the ping is really inconsistent for example i was pinging google earlier on and i was getting something like 21ms, 90ms, 32ms, 20ms and was wondering what would be the best fix for that
Another issue iv got is with youtube sometimes when i play a video it buffers for a few seconds which i find really unusual, was with bt previously and never had the buffering bar come up even once during my 2 years with them, is this like a bug with youtube or is it the ping spikes causing it?

And it's wireless can't get it wired cuz the router is like downstairs but the connection is definitely stable, had my bt router in the exact position and always got stable ping and speed
If you have the SH3, you have to turn the firewall off for the BQM to work.
Doesn't matter if the VM hub is in the same place, it's a different bit of kit, not all routers are made equal. It's always best to test things wired, this will show whether it's just a wireless problem or something else.
