HP 840 G3 and external monitor, wifi drop

HP Recommended
840 G3
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I am using HP 840 G3 and I have connected my LG 29UM58 monitor using a HDMI to Displayport adapter because the ;laptop doesnt have an HDMI port.

 

Funny thing is that if I connect monitor wifi starts dropping packets and performs very slow, once monitor is detached it works fine. I have seen other posts too on internet where people complain about simillar thing with laptops of different brands.

 

The monitor doesnt have any wifi connection so its not a problem with interference, when I unplugged the displayport the monitor was still powred ON and performance became fine which again means its not related to any inteferance .

 

Do you know what problem can this be?
