So I recently changed out my ISP-provided modem and router and replaced it with the listed Netgear Orbi model. I play games all the time (particularly Rainbow Six Siege), and have been noticing times where the game will freeze and then fix itself. When in Discord during this freeze, my ping goes from around ~43 to around ~1200. I've tried factory resetting, disabling/enabling multiple things, consulting the Netgear community, etc.
This is all over the 5ghz wifi channel, using a Realtek 8812BU Wireless LAN 802.11ac USB NIC to connect to the wifi. Idk what the issue is. Any ideas?
