maybe use ethernet or check task manager to see whats taking up so much network, also u could have switched sever location so check ur on the server u want to be on for lowest ping

well if ur getting a higher download it should be the ethernets faults check ur task manager and see if anything is taking up the "Network" section

im rlly not sure whats causing the issue the only thing that comes to mind is the physical server location, i had a look and the fortnite server for NA east is located in virgina but the valorant ones are located in California so, but im not from America so i dont know a lot about your servers it could work but i doubt it
