Gamin causing my ethernet connection to drop for a few minutes at a time

New Contributor

I have tried everything on my PC as far as troubleshooting my issue.  My ethernet will drop connection when I am gaming.  it can happen quickly, or after an hour, but it seems to always happen at some point.  My ruckus gives me my ethernet connections in all of my rooms.  Wifi seems to have no issues, and my other pc that is connected via ethernet has no issues, so i think i have narrowed it down to when I am specifically gaming.  It doesnt matter what game it is.  On my pc i've reset network settings, toggled power management, reloaded windows, bought a new motherboard, even used a usb ethernet dongle, and nothing has remedied the issue.  It seems to be based purely on the dataload from gaming.  I have gigabit fiber internet through brightspeed (centurylink).  I am wondering if there are any settings I can adjusts on the ruckus that might be causing this issue.  I am not an expert by any means but i have been searching for a solution for a while now.
