  1. My internet keeps disconnecting when downloading certain games. How do I fix this?


    I recently tried updating Fortnite on my PC through thr Epic Games launcher, and it would update for maybe 10 minutes, then my internet would disconnect and crash the update. After searching around, a YouTube video told me it might br the Epic Games launcher itself, so I switched to a different launcher called Rare, but I’m still getting the same results as before. What do I do?My connection is wireless, and it only affects my PC, so I have to restart it to reconnect to WiFi, I can’t just go into settings and reconnect.Thanks!

    :)

    Internet disconnects frequently while playing steam games

    Yes, I can confirm that both the computer which I am starting the game on, and another computer, gets a Ping Timeout.

    What happens is, i start the game. As soon as i do anything that interferes with the internet (e.g. loading up the Servers list to join a game, or sometimes i even get into the game, but gets disconnected too quick for me to start playing)
