Hi, I have this particular problem with Youtube.

The basic fact is: when I connect to Youtube via wifi,
the website loads, but the videos don't start playing.
If I connect the PC to router with cable, the videos start normally.
The Wifi channel is quite free, it's N type and the
encoding is with WPA2.
The router is a Netgear DGN1000.

What can I do to overcome this?

I add some points to the current situation:
a) other videos' websites work normally with Wifi,
like Vimeo, the problem occurs with Youtube.
B) both the cable and wireless networks
are configured to work with Google's DNS,
both set in the PC, not in router.
c) the wireless card seems to have the updated drivers.

I hope you can give me some hints.

Try running a speedtest http://www.speedtest.net/ on your internet connection on wired and wireless and post the results next time. Please revert your DNS server address back from google DNS to automatic then check the difference.
