Question Connection cuts every several seconds, only for my PC.

Since I built a mostly new rig I have had strange, pretty much unique, connection issues. Every 6 to 8 seconds, can't tell exactly, my stream on both ends halts, I do not lose connection to the network, however. This isn't random or intermittent, it happens every time all the time, the stops last for about 1.5-2 seconds every time.
Specs.:
Router: Ubiquiti AmpliFi Router HD
Modem: Motorola MB8600
Mobo: ASUS PRIME Z370-A
PS: Thermaltake TR2-RX 850W
Wireless Adapter: EDUP EP-DB1607 or ASUS USB-AC56
OS: Windows 10 64x
ISP: Cox

I have a bunch of clients on the network but I am the only one who gets any problems with speeds and this issue I'm having now. I have updated my driver on both adapters and my Motherboard, the Router has all updated firmware as well. I have a screenshot of the history in Task Manager's performance tab.


As I was assembling this post I did more speed tests inside the app for my router and out of nowhere the problem is fixed but the phenomenon is still super strange. I assume it will hit me again for no reason but I'd like to see if this problem has ever affected anyone else...

Try unplugging and replugging in your wifi card.
If you have another wifi card, maybe try that instead.
A bios update wouldn't hurt, and maybe get the latest drivers for your wifi card.

Speed tests are fine, a little sporadic but eventually it climbs to a normal speed, for me... My router has it's own test in the app and it gets exactly what we pay for but with high ping surprisingly.
