Question about 2wire (1000-400108-001) Router
My brother just added a new computer to the wireless network, and while simple downloads have never cause a problem for me before, his youtube streams will cause my ping to skyrocket to over 1000ms. Other computers on the network will not cause this to happen, but if it makes any difference, my computer is the furthest from the router and his is less than 20 feet away from mine.
Thanks in advance for any help.
It is a well known fact that the more computers you have on a network, and the more they are doing the slower everything gets.
Although that sounds a bit excessively high for a ping it is very possible that because you are farther from the router that your data is colliding with his. thus slowing down things even further. it might help to spread things out a little if at all possible, and see what that will do for you.

Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!
From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
hope this helps
