I have a windows xp professinal setup, it's 2006-ish dell 9100.  Youtube is really bad about stuttering both audio and video wise.  What kind of issue is this and how do I fix it?  I have to be able to listen to my music.

Often, it is an issue called "buffer bloat"...

How do I fix a buffer bloat?  I have fast internet, is it a driver update issue by chance?

Go to DSLReports.com and run their speed/buffer bloat test...

That one wasn't trying to work at first but now it does.  I got a few instances of spiking ping over 100 m/s, some are really high.  I have noticed more recently when gaming on a ps4, the network will lag quickly and then not anymore.  It didn't use to do this at all, it's still fast but there is some kind of intermittent interruption just abruptly with online gaming and lag, and then it's over again.  

 

One test sucked, the other was great, all A's, no spikes.  On the poorer test, I got a ping of 1600+ m/s, one other test was a spike at 441

Are you on DSL or cable?

 

What router are you using? Is the router firmware up to date?

Ping times are a measure of latency on the route to the destination and back.

 

See my questions above...

It's comcast and their router.  Once again, this has been a more recent problem.  I still think it's the computer and not the youtube because my connection speed is 144.5 mb/s on the wifi according to the computer, and the youtube vides are horrible, like static interuptions, just never plays right at all.  It doesn't buffer, it just doesn't play right, like it's stuttering.  My phone doesn't do it.  My playstation internet messes up but not in the same rate the youtube video does.

I would make sure the router firmware is up to date, and that you have the latest drivers for your network adapters.

 

Do you get this "stuttering" using wireless (2.4 or 5 Ghz) or an ethernet connection?
