  1. Hello, I am new here, I have been facing this problem for weeks from now, When I play dota 1 for example, I keep disconnecting before I do anything, or playing COD or anything else, I am connected to my wifi, but when I disconnect, I am still connected to my wifi, I can browse in the internet without any problems, but I only have that problem while gaming, please help.

    Get into your router and set the MTU to 1492 - - this will help

    Well, not only on wifi, it occurs on lan too, and not only in my router, it occurs while connected to any router, does it sound like a problem in my adapter?

    I have found that the MTU size is a large (but not the only) contributor.
    If it is less that 1500 and satisfies
    mtu = 1500 - (N * 8) where N is a number in the range 1 -> 180​
    the system will not perform packet reassembly and be more stable

    For the wired NIC, run
    Code:
    Type netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Local Area Connection” mtu=1492 store=persistent
    For the WiFi, run
    Code:
    Type netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface “Wireless Network Connection” mtu=1492 store=persistent

    I think I know the problem, the bytes somehow stop sending and receiving right when I play online, thats why I disconnect, I did the MTU thing and still problem isn't fixed..

    Nope, it's the other way around, the disconnect stops the read write sending.
