Recently the internet on my HP has been very unstable, https://imgur.com/sW0HDS9, this snip show how it is affecting me during games and video conferencing. I'm using wireless connection because it is too far away from the router for ethernet. I'm wondering if there are any suggestions to what I could do to solve this.
Thanks in advance

@lastwhisper04 -- talk to your Internet Service Provider.
They may have a newer cable-modem that emits a stronger signal to better reach your computer.
They may offer a "WiFi Repeater" -- stick it halfway between your cable-modem and your computer. It will "relay" the WiFi signals (like baseball outfielder to cutoff player to catcher) to give a stronger signal to your computer.
What WiFi adapter is in your computer? Wireless G? Wireless N? Wireless AC? Wireless AX? A better adapter, with matching support from the WiFi-adapter inside your cable-modem, could increase the signal-strength reaching your computer.
Another option is "Ethernet-over-power". Connect one Ethernet cable from your cable-modem to one of these adapters, and plug the adapter into a power-socket on a wall. Connect another one of these adapters to a power-socket on the wall in the room where your computer is, and run a short Ethernet cable from this adapter into your computer. The electrical wires substitute for running a very-long Ethernet cable between the cable-modem and your computer.
