Question Internet disconnects after uploading file


Jun 27, 2014
Hey guys,
Hoping I could get some insight here. I'm pretty damn sure it's an issue with my motherboard wifi port, I've tried everything. Basically whenever I upload a file to certain places, my internet immediately cuts out, and I have to restart my computer 2-3 times before it works again. It's weird, because Google drive it does it sometimes, other times not, but the weirdest is that on Patreon I can upload a file of any size and the internet cuts immediately.

I've tried replacing ethernet cable, testing laptop wifi, bought a wifi adapter for the PC, literally same issue occurs. Also worth noting, 2 of my RAM slots on my board are dead which makes me think further it may be my motherboard going bad. I've tried updating drivers, everything, and it's literally only when uploading files my internet just shuts down (and it's for my PC only, no one else, router is fine, direct connection is fine for everyone else).

Any thoughts, you think it's probably the motherboard? I've researched everywhere for an answer.
