Your connection is better than mine. You should not be having any issues watching YouTube videos. Perhaps it's something with your computer? What quality settings do you have set for youtube?

Try running a traceroute to see where your pings are choking at. Try going to testmy.net to see what your D/L speed is. You may try rebooting things if you are connected to a router and may try rebooting your modem also.

Is your wireless password protected? Try changing the password to make sure no one is "borrowing" it.

Come to think of it, I was also having problems loading YouTube videos the other day. Could have been YouTube. Have you revisited the site to see if it is better?
