For the last 2-3 weeks i have been getting sketchy streaming (buffering / micro buffering) via WiFi on my Mac Air. (connection was fine before this).
There are 3 other devices/laptops connected to the WiFi and they dont have problems.
I have closed down every program except chrome / 1 tab (youtube) and the streaming is very spotty, BUT i have full internet connection. I have tried the same with Spotify with the same results. Safari - same results.
Running "speed test" has my connection is downloading consistently around 18-20 mbs / upload around 10 mbs
Nothing crazy is showing up in the Activity Monitor
i am desperate to get to the bottom of this. Software ? Hardware ?
What i have tried already:
reboot the modem and the WiFi router several times
reboot laptop several times
turning wifi on and off / connecting and disconneting as well.
I have tried sitting right next to the wifi router, as well as moving around it
