For the past month or so, my internet randomly drops whenever I am playing a game. I have looked into the task manager and found that it is only my upload speeds that tank when I play games. What confuses me is that this also happens when I am playing single player games. However, it only happens to games on either Blizzard or Steam, not outside games, like Minecraft. I am unsure whether this is a firewall issue, or perhaps it is an issue with my network card. If it is a firewall issue, I have never understood how to work around my firewall, so if somebody could help me around that, it would be swell.

If it matters, I have an Xfinity router, model name: "cgm4140com". My computer is a combination of parts from CyberPower PC. My motherboard/Network Card model is: "ASRock Z390 Phantom Gaming 4 -CB ATX w/ 802.11ac Wi-Fi"

Thank you for reading!
