Way to gather information on Internet connection issues

My son's computer keeps having internet connection issues.

-Is playing on a minecract server / minecraft client

Sometimes these apps are also open
-Twitch
-Discord

He is playing on a minecraft server.  and begins to experience lag more and more frequently before the crash.
Is there any way to track down the culprit?  We could assume that it is not enough RAM and go buy more RAM and the problem happens again and we are no better off.

I am looking for a way to gather information that can help tells us what thing( s ) is causing the problem(  s  )

Open Admin Tools, Resource Monitor and be sure the Network tab is open. Watch it for 30 minutes or so. Do you see any dropouts or issues.

If you have the resource monitor open (CTRL+SHIFT+ESCAPE, Performance tab, Open Resource Monitor) you can tick the processes that are for Minecraft and it will keep these highlighted so you can monitor what they are doing over time.

Just keep them up, and when you start having issues, bring the windows back (or if you have multiple monitors keep it visible) and see what the Minecraft (and any others on the box) processes are doing. If checking CPU/Memory tabs you see a stead increase of resource usage you can start to tie it down to the processes that are causing it (Minecraft could be just a red herring).

Lag is normal for the hardware spec.

8GB RAM is only the minimum requirement for playing Minecraft games if you run Twitch and Discord at the same time.

You need at least 16gb RAM and a decent graphic card.
