[SOLVED] Internet frequently disconnects only on my PC

The internet connection to my PC drops out of nowhere, usually only for a short moment and comes right back but sometimes longer than that. The router is downstairs and I'm the only one losing connection.

First I got the router replaced, and then I tried adding a wi-fi extender between my room and the router, both of which only helped a little bit. I even moved the router up to my room and used wired internet for a while, but then it started losing connection to everyone in the house (even myself, wired) while the router says its working fine.

I can't tell if the issue is my room or my PC. Nobody else in the house has problems as long as the router is downstairs. It still happens to me while I'm wired, so I don't think its signal interference either?

If it helps, my wi-fi card is the Realtek RTL8822BE 802.11 ac PCIe Adapter

You said it happens "while you are wired" too. That implies something besides your wifi is unstable.
Upgrade to the latest drivers for your Networking hardware. That MIGHT help.
