Internet Speed Fluctuations. Connection Drops when Playing Games

Hello, thank you for taking the time to help me out with this problem.

A few days ago my internet started really acting up. Not the connection to the router, the speed would slow dramatically at random points and then come back up to normal speed.

I could deal with this except for the fact that I run youtube.com/grimandjakegames, a gaming YouTube channel. This problem has made me unable to play any online games without the internet connection failing. It will run fine for a while but then all of the sudden it just stops and then I'm disconnected from the server.

I've contacted my ISP but they don't seem to know anything and just had me reset my modem which did nothing.

The reason I am so confused is because nothing changed from when the internet was working fine to when it wasn't. This lead me to believe it was the ISP's problem but maybe some of you could help.

If you need any more info just reply below and I will try to help you out as best I can.

Thanks,
Hicoga
