My WiFi connection slows down when opening any program that uses high power. The weird part is that the connection of that program to my internet is fine, but every other program's connection is immensely slowed down. From 200mbps to 100kbps. I have tried to change my power settings, and also the power settings of the internet card, but it doesn't seem to work.

What model laptop is that? Looks like the CPU and Wi Fi or eGPU are all tied in together on that budget laptop so it is doing this. Unless there was a time it wasn't doing this.

It is the Lenovo Legion Y520. I don't remember if there was a time when this situation didn't occur. I didn't really play heavy games until a year after getting this.
