Task manager shows that wifi is intermittent


I met a strange thing when I played a game, it continues to disconnect, but other apps are ok. But I do find the wifi intermittent in the task manager even I open a youtube video lasting hours. When I do an online internet speed test, it shows that there is nothing wrong with it. I am wondering whether someone can help me understand this kind of situation. Thank you!

Re: Task manager shows that wifi is intermittent

Hello, @Titan68.


Welcome to Rogers Community Forums! 😃


Thank you for posting your concern in the Community. Keep getting disconnected while playing a game can be quite unpleasant. It's good to know that otherwise, your WiFi network is performing well. 


The graph you have posted shows the normal operation of your WiFi; send/receive of data is not continuous even when you are watching a 4K video. 


The only time you will see a continuous throughput is when you are downloading a file/program, like shown below:



As for getting disconnected from the game:

  • What game were you playing?
  • Have you tried a different game?
  • Have you tried gaming on a wired connection?

Also, can you run a ping and traceroute to your gaming server? You can follow the instructions listed in the knowledgebase article


We look forward to hearing from you.
