Hi all, I'm not sure where to post this issue.

I've been gaming on PC for a while, mostly on a wireless adapter due to my ISP not being able to reach where I need the router, however, I've always had an odd problem. When I launch a game SOMETIMES the game will lag so badly, my Discord ping will shoot up to 5000 (max) and makes my wifi useless. When I tab out completely, it goes back to normal and I can even hear the game running as if there is no network issues at all. For a while I thought it was just unlucky timing on my end and my internet was actually dying out, but this has become more and more prevalent... Anyone relate?
