Hi all.
i'm using an Ethernet connection to a bt powerline adapter. at times my internet runs perfect, getting about 20 ping in overwatch whilst using skype, however at other times it will struggle to load a youtube video at 144p.
This is frustrating to say the least.
I have tried resetting the router multiple times and have linked and unlinked the powerline adapter more times than i'd like to count. If anyone could help me out with this issue it would be greatly appreciated as this is driving me mad. Cheers
-Joe

What model?
Describe how the lights look when it is working and how they look when it is struggling.

I'm not in the UK but we use Netgear Powerline adapters successfully for about 6 years.

Forget the router lights. You do have 2 powerline adpater, correct?
One plugs in near the router and is connected by ethernet to your router.
The other is at a second location where you want wired access.

Again, I need to know what model you are using so I can track down the manual.
