    I have a Samsung Galaxy A8 (2018) and everything works fine. The wifi is okay when I stream on Netflix, watch youtube, do video calls, and any other internet related activities. But as soon as I launch an online game, the wifi suddenly drops instantly and when I exit the game, the wifi goes back to its strong signal.
    I tried connecting to another wifi network and everything works fine except when connecting to my home wifi. So I assumed there must be something wrong with our router but then I tried to play the exact same games on different devices connected on my home wifi and everything is okay EXCEPT for my device.

    I already tried the following:
    -restore my device to factory default
    -restart my wifi router

    No luck. Can anyone help me?

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you manage your home wi-fi network, or does someone else? Which router do you have? Check the router manual to see if it has any settings for QoS (Quality of Service), or any gaming settings.

    I manage my wifi network, I have a sky broadband router and I don't know if it has the settings for QoS or any gaming settings

    I got as far as this site: https://www.sky.com/help/articles/do...d-user-manuals. Can you figure out which is your router?

    Here's the manual: https://setuprouter.com/router/techn...anual-1685.pdf. Log into its menu using your computer's web browser and see if any firewall has been set up. The only other setting that might be relevant is Multicast -- you could try turning that on.
