Hello, I am on a wireless connection and normally my speeds are about 30Mbps down and 50Mbps up. After about 5 to 10 minutes my speeds go down to less than 1Mbps up and down. And if I reset my wireless adapter it is back to normal for a little while, and then back into the viscous cycle that is ruining my online gaming. What is the problem? And what can I do to fix it?

Thanks

could it be that there is to many people that connect ot the service and system could not handle and drop speed ,the other you could try if you could put a extended usb cable to the antenna to raise her higher .
