Wireless streaming slows down internet?

August 5, 2009 4:57:00 PM

I've been searching around the internet trying to find an answer for a month now with no luck so I decided to ask on a forum.

My problem is.. whenever someone on my network tries to stream a video it would significantly slows down my internet (from 10ms ping to 800ms ping or higher). There is something I dont understand, if I try to access the same streaming material on a wired connection, the internet speed would still remain fast (below 15ms ping).

Why is wireless internet take up more bandwidth than wired? Is that a hardware configuration issue? How can I fix it?
