Random Ping Spikes and Packet Loss late at night?

Over the last few weeks, I've noticed a lot of random ping spikes and some occasional packet loss between the hours of about 11 PM to 4 AM. This, in particular, affects Discord on my desktop PC (connected via ethernet) and my Android phone (Wi-Fi obviously), it also affects my Nintendo Switch's connection in general. I have an XB6 Arris gateway and up until now haven't had any major issues with it. Attached are the results of a trace route and a continuous ping via command prompt. 

 

Likely unrelated but I found in the event logs a couple of hours repeating daily at the same time, but I thought I'd mention them.
