Unstable wifi only for my laptop

Wifi
Hi I'm using a Omen 15 Laptop and use a wifi with 2 other roommates. When I'm just watching videos there is no problem and it is high speed. However, when I start playing games, the speed goes unstable. I get 20 ping at times, but also spike up to 2000 ping. I tried a lot of things and my friends say that they have no fluctuation with the internet and it is only me that is experiencing it. The only thing I did to my laptop is that I added another 8GB RAM to it.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Check to see what other background apps you may have running. If you are on a Window 10 macine, click the Windows icon, then the gear icon. Click on privacy. Scroll down on the left till you see Background apps then click on it. Try turning off the apps you don’t use.  These can kill your bandwidth and cause lag spikes where you get disconnected. You may also want to take a look at you ISP download speed. When sharing it with 2 others it will slow down.

    Type MSCONFIG on Search bar and check what services are active. Be careful & uncheck the services that you do not require. But be cautious. Also check your hard disk space specially C: drive.

    Sometimes version of Windows (or any other platform you may be using) or other software is out of date. Please check if there is any update available. Also check if the hardware drivers are OK.
