Frequent signal drops

Good evening everybody,

 

Had quite a frustrating experience today attempting to watch youtube/iplayer and generally surf the internet.

 

Quite difficult to describe the problem; but here is my attempt:

 

While streaming a video, it will play fine for 15seconds to 1minute.  Then for the next two minutes or so it will freeze and not download or buffer any other video.  During this period I cannot load any new websites and even the stalwart google fails to load.

 

This is happening on both a PC and a Macbook.

 

These connection freezes also incredibly frustrating when trying to work via a VPN with the office - even in none-demanding applications such as telnet sessions..(NB: these problems happen with or without the VPN connected).

 

While this is occuring I set a ping up (just using windows command line) and could see no massive gaps/delays pinging my version 1 homehub.

 

So I am unsure as to where the problem lies, whether it be with the wireless network or the actual BB connection.

 

Any suggestions?

 

Location is Castleford, West Yorks (phone 01977).

 

Thanks
