For some time, past months, keep having packet loss, even latency, on games like BF 2042, Rainbow Six Siege, in many multiplayer games, but not all.
There is an alt+tab issue too, when i do that, like watching youtube till game loads, i experience latency after a time, even freezes
Is there a way to fix this problems?

Start by providing a list of make and model of all your hardware.
Also what network hardware you are using (router, WIFI extender, whatever). Are you using a wired or wireless connection to your router? If wireless have you tried a long ethernet cable ?

I don't know. You didn't provide the command you used to ping.
You also need to open a CMD.exe window and run ipconfig.exe /all Post the output of that.
The address you should ping is the gateway address listed in the ipconfig results.
Default gateway ip? Then it's 0% loss.
But it says, time<1ms TTL=64 and Minimum = 0ms, Maximum = 0ms, Average = 0ms

By not "showing your work", you are making it more difficult.
It doesn't sound like you are doing a continuous ping. The "-t" option on ping will allow the command to run until you hit "Ctrl-C" Just a few pings is insufficient data.
If the link to your router is stable, then you can try a continuous ping to 8.8.8.8 That will show if there is any general packet loss from your ISP.
