I stream as a full time job and I've been dealing with a huge issue for about a year now. At random times, I don't notice a pattern of when, my stream will drop frames like crazy. It'll go from a constant bit rate of 4500 kbs to 300 and stay below a healthy threshold for hours. Like I said I don't notice a specific time of the day that the internet does this. However, my roommate streams early mornings and he has not had a problem for this entire time. Is it possible that it is a hardware issue inside my computer effecting networking? If so what should I look for? I thought that maybe it was the cable going into the modem or maybe the modem itself but if that's the case wouldn't that be effecting my roommates stream as well? I just don't know what to look for and before buying something I want to be more educated on what to look for. Thank you for any information.
