    Pc drops wireless when playing online games

    Hi everyone, I have an issue i cant seem to find out about anywhere on the net. I have a broadcom 802.11n wireless card in my comp google fiber internet half a room away. and anytime I play online games such as wow, or guildwars 2 I get disconnected from my wireless. i have to reset the wireless adapter to get back on. i am using windows defender, i have win 10 operating system. so far i have reset ip from cmd.exe, changed setting in internet browser area, changed hpv4 address, deleted all of my cookies and saved internet files and i am just at a loss. The weird part about it is its only games i can stream movies just fine. ty for all the help

    Maybe the WiFi chip is overheating when the whole system is very warm. Keep in mind that the operating temperature for typical WiFi adapter is 80 degrees C
