I've had this issue for months that when im playing a game i randomly disconnect for about 10-15s and then its fine again. Sometimes it happens frequently and sometimes it doesnt happen but once and hour. I've had very few occasions were its never happened at least once in a day. My internet is fine other than those disconnects though. I never get ping spikes or lag issues at all unless its the disconnects. CAN SOME ONE HELP ME PLS!

I have the same exact issue as Nuplar.

Mainly happens playing Valorant. Disconnects will be ~10-15 seconds long and only happen once every hour or so an average.

I have also noticed that when this happens, I can still hear people on discord (but they can't hear me). Also while watching my CPU & GPU while playing. When the freeze happens, my GPU (NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060) goes to 0% and my CPU drops. My guess is that this is because the game goes temporarily unresponsive but I am not an expert.

Find using slack / zoom calls will also trigger it where it will temporarily disconnect but I can still hear the user. Only seems to happen when I am uploading data as it never occurs watching videos / browsing the web.


Any help is much appreciated. I have gone through the gauntlet of online recommendations to no avail.

Thanks
