Hi there,

I live in student dorms using 'eduroam' wifi. It normally doesn't allow Xbox Live to be used from it, but I did a workaround of simply attaching an Ethernet cable from my laptop to my Xbox One. 

Now this works but the problem is that I get consistent spikes in ping making any online game unplayable. 

I have a few limitations when it comes to fixing this. Firstly, the router is in my room, but there is a padlock on it which I can't open ( meaning they don't want me to mess round with it) thus I cannot reset it by pressing the reset button. It also means I cannot attach an Ethernet cable directly from the router to the xbox as that damn padlock is stopping me.

Is there any workaround I can do from my laptop, like somehow resetting the router wirelessly? 

I recently updated my network adapter drivers so I don't think they're the problem. 

Any ideas?

Many Thanks!
