Google Stadia Great Over Wifi for Months - Unplayable Since 24 Dec

I have been playing games on Google Stadia over wifi for months without a problem. Since 8 am on 24 Dec, it has become unplayable (stuttering/pixelation). Here is some troubleshooting information:

1. I have a M350 broadband service.

2. Rebooting the router didn't help.

3. Google Stadia plays fine using a PC connected via ethernet (but that is very inconvenient).

4. Other apps/services (e.g. Netfix) still work fine over wifi.

5. Speed tests over ethernet look fine (390/40 mbps).

6. Speed tests over wifi vary with time of day (50-10 down/20-12 up).

7. The problem has persisted when I tested at 6am this morning.

8. A wifi ping test to google.com gave 30ms average round trip and 0% loss.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have managed to figure out the issue myself. For some reason, my Hub 3.0 router had disabled the 5Ghz wifi band. Turning it back on fixed the problem.
