Packet loss, doesn't happen in other OS

Hi, since I first installed garuda it always had some packet loss when playing dota and when updating garuda it sometimes gets great speeds and sometimes super slow.. I didn't know I was dealing with packet loss until trying to run the same game (dota 2) both in garuda and windows. In garuda it always shows some packet loss and in windows it shows 0 packet loss. I'm thinking this is a driver issue but couldn't figure out how to install the drivers for the ethernet adapter.
Here's my garuda-inxi

I tried installing drivers from intel website, but when I use make install it shows the following:

Could anyone help troubleshooting this?

Install drivers only with pacman.
How do you install this game?
Open issue or help request on the "game" web side.

Not sure how to install the drivers with pacman... It doesn't show nothing like intel-ethernet. Tried arch documentation, but it shows only stuff about other adapters.

I installed from steam, but the internet is slow all around, I'm now trying to test if the linux-lts will solve my problem, but it is downloading at 20kbps

Seems ok.

There are a couple of packages in the AUR.
igp looks only a bit older than the version you mentioned from Intel website and should be only for the linux-lts kernel (I think).
Read more here:
igb-dkms should work with linux-zen, but it seems outdated/unmaintained:
To install from AUR you can use the paru helper, e g.:

paru igb

Exit the PKGBUILD review with button q and confirm installation.

Tried that, but it returns the same error as the one I get when trying to install from intel website. Its awkward because it worked just fine when I fresh installed, but after a while it broke, may have been an update. If it doesn't work in lts I'll fresh install again.

If the igb firmware was updated, it's possible it could have introduced a regression. It is possible to test older versions of the linux-firmware package by downgrading. It would also be worth testing out the linux-mainline kernel.
