Whenever I start up a game on a laptop via wireless, the wired desktop has major connectivity issues. It's slow or just outright hangs when loading web pages or streaming low Res content.

The game is old and I didn't expect that it was using much bandwidth, but I put a monitor on the laptop and the game is not transferring much data back and forth (only a few MB per minute at max). However, it is a constant level of communication. I also ran a speed test (dslreports) and my most recent results at 75/68 so it's not for a lack of available bandwidth but my connection had some bad bufferbloat when uploading. The final rating was a C, but the peak during upload was around 1400ms.

Any ideas on what to check?
