Thank you for posting and welcome to the Community.
With the details you've posted it does sound like it could be wireless interference or wireless congestion depending of how many devices you have connected to your WiFi.
What speeds are you seeing on your connection and how many devices do you have connected to WiFi?
A wired connection will always work better. If your TV is only 5 meters away from your hub it would be a good idea to run an Ethernet cable to it connecting the tv or TV box, which would also free up some bandwidth on the WiFi as well.
There are a few thing you can do to help improve the Wifi connection. Like moving the hub to a new position away from any other electrical equipment. You could also try changing the wireless channel -
Thanks Paddy 🙂
I went to look wifi channel and realised it was set to a specific channel for 2.4 and a specific channel for 5ghz - I've reset it to the recommended settings so that the channels are now smart selected - I've run a new ping test (three times) and whilst the ping rate has improved a little (70-105) over the three tests, the jitter rate was 4ms on the first pass and 9ms on the second pass, 10.2 on the third, so that sounds like it has helped.
Currently the only device I'm using on the network is my TV, laptop and phone, as everyone else is out at work/college.
I'll see how it goes today and then report back
