Hi! My games keep on getting ping spikes and fps drops randomly in games, and I've tried with both Ethernet and WiFi and I cannot find the issue. All I can see is that the latency in game will spike and my fps will drop and makes the game unplayable for about a second. I've attached a video so it is evident what is occurring. Any help as to diagnosing this issue or what steps to take to isolate what the problem is would be greatly appreciated!

Note: This problem happens on all of my games, like Apex Legends and CS:GO, but Overwatch was the game I chose to record for. It also seems to occur when I'm using my computer normally, like sometimes it will lag for a bit in the same was as the video but just on a web page. It also occurred when typing this post/

The spikes and fps drops happen at the 0:10 and 1:10 timestamps
