While on discord and playing games my internet cuts out...kind of. I will disconnect from the game and still hear other people talking but cannot be heard people in discord. Other than that I have no connection to the internet. I'll have no connection to on any other application. All other WIFI connected devices and computers remain connected. Any thoughts?
 
When it breaks see if you can do
Ping 8.8.8.8

If this work you likely have some DNS issue. You can hard code the dns to 8.8.8.8 (this is a public google dns) in your nic settings.

If the ping does not work then I would suspect network driver issues.

Youte upload speed is significantly worse than your download speed most likely. For example im 75down and 5 up or 1/15th the speed.

Cable companies to this to save on channels. Theres a limited number of them and people consume far more than they upload. So cable companies allocate bandwidth based on that fact.

Sadly there isnt much you can do about it unless you sacrifice game udp upload quality. There is qos software that allows you to set priority for individual programs on your pc. Some work some dont. And you have to be willing to dig into what ports discord uses for chat.
