Ping/latency spikes in the evening - Packet loss

Hi there,

It seems without fail every evening around 6:00 PM, I start to get ping/latency spikes coupled with packet loss, that makes it near impossible to play online games, not to mention videos buffer every min or so.   How can I fix this?

 

Key points:

-My internet speed download speed is 200 or 250

-This does not occur during the day prior to 6:00

-My computer is hardwired to the modem

-I live alone in a house so no one is using my bandwidth downloading videos/stream etc.

-The packet loss appears to continue through the remaining hops

-I have used WinMTR to track said events.
