Question Everytime I play a game, my non-game internet slows to a crawl

Hi,

This happens no matter what game it is. Speed tests prior show 300 megabits per second, but during a game they will go to 0-3. Soon as I exit the game, back to normal. Any ideas?

You also could have QoS (Quality of Service) settings in your router that are incorrect and are giving priority only to that game (or gaming in general) when active, throttling everything else.

Take a look at that, too.

Would that be the case if it's only the computer playing the game - other computers on the network work fine.

Does it also happen when streaming a movie or youtube at high settings?
if not it could be a bad uplink as jsmithepa says.
What is the speed adverticed by your ISP/what do you pay for UP and DOWN?

It doesn't change for youtube or a movie. ISP is 300 Down / 85 Up and speed tests when I'm not playing a game confirm that.
