    Hi,

    My internet/gaming/netflix has been slowing down lately, some parts of the day there are no problems, other parts (4-10pm) its impossible. I live with one roommate, I have my own router and he has his own router. Mine is a Netgear router, not sure what his is. Our internet, with no problems is: 65ping, 4.8 mbps, and .60 upload. When its busy: 180ping, .30 mbps, and .09 upload. I constantly get kicked off xbox live and its super frustrating. The thing is, when my roommate is gone I am able to stream netflix in HD without any problems. However, when he's using netflix the quality of mine drops to the lowest signal and most times disconnects me from xbox live. I'm not sure if this is an ISP issue or a router issue.

    Anything will Help, thanks guys!

    Those download bandwidth numbers are for an ethernet connection, right? Do you get the same with a connection directly to the modem?

    Do you have cable internet service? If so, are you in a neighborhood where it is reasonable to expect much higher internet usage in the evening?
