For the last 10 years I had a wi-fi 10Mbps internet and yesterday I finally got myself a Fiber optic internet 300Mbps. I thought that all my connection problems will be over and life will be bliss, but I've immediately noticed some micro-stuttering while watching some youtube videos. Every 10 seconds or so, there will be a literally 1/2 second stutter. Same thing in multiplayer games. I've tried nothing and I'm all out of ideas. I know close to nothing about networking, please help.
 

EDIT: Actually, the whole computer is stuttering, even when I'm watching some downloaded movie.

How old is your router? Is the computer connected via hard wired connection or wirelessly?

 

EDIT: How old is your computer? What browser are you using? Is your browser up to date?

Nevermind now, I think I fixed it. I needed two routers, one was connected with the optic fiber, then I connected it to the second one that had good wi-fi. I placed them further away from each other and the stuttering stopped (for now at least).

Do you have any device that is connected both wirelessly and wired Ethernet ? You may have constructed a network loop, what you describe is a common symptom. Most wireless routers will detect that and simply ignore the wireless connection, but if you have two routers, one wired and one wireless, and connect to both, you may be fighting yourself.
