How many computers / devices (tablets, phones etc.) are you using?

Are they all having the same or similar problems?

2x laptops 1x ipad 2x iphones r wireless, as a test, i've attached the same cable into one of the laptops n it doesn't seem to have the same issues
i also installed thunderbird on both the PC and laptop and tried sending the same email, from the laptop it goes out fine but on the PC its says the STMP is timing out
hence taking PC into work to see if the same problems replicates itself there, so if

same problems when PC is using the work connection = the issue is with the PC

no issues when PC is using the work connection = something about this PC's config and the new connection to the Fritz Box somehow is causing this .....

at least it'll be a step forward..worse case i could buy a network card n stick it into the PC n hope that'll fix the issues

OK, so it looks like the majority of devices are working just fine, so it's pretty unlikely to be a Snap! issue.

Could be either your PC (which you are moving to try and isolate) or your router config (or both!).

Either way, the thread title seems a bit misleading - blaming Snap! for issues which are [probably] outside of their control - might want to update it...

switched from AVAST to AVG - no diff
turned off windows firewall - no diff

ok so now at work and it's running fine,
no drop connections, large emails going out, browsing on firefox and chrome is good
I can even post onto geekzone!
so pretty much what was happening on the vid i posted is not happening here

so I think I can safely say it's something on the Fritz box that the PC doesn't like or vice versa,
would appreciate any suggestions that I can look at
thks all for getting me this far.

*the router Fritz!Box 7360 came from SNAP and the Visionstream/Chorus guys installed it so I've haven't done much with it*

I was getting crazy lag, like 6-second ping times to snap. Then I realised even pinging the router was all over the place - even timing out - but only from wireless connections.

In my router's settings, I changed it's wireless frequency band-thingy channel from 'auto' to one of the numbers - '4', I think. Boom - constant 3ms ping. Thinking back, my laptop had been laggy ever since new neighbours moved in, and added their WiFi to the local mix.
