Do not use "automatic channel selection". Actually try different channels, and see if they work better than others.

Wifi channels overlap enough that all you really need to try is 1, 6, and 11.

I'm sorry, but I'm Linux user, so I can't install Inssider
Okay, use LinSSID then.

It will tell you what local Wi-Fi's you are competing with.

Inssider seems to cost now, but I got good results from vistumbler on windows and linSSID on LINUX. There is a nice android free app, too. Wi-Fi Analytics. Any of them can tell you what the competition is, where the sweet spot is.

I installed "Wi-Fi Analytics" and have found that there are at least 3 APs in one channel (including mine). Now I'll try to change it.

So you are saying that you've moved Wi-Fi channel to one with less interference but you still have packet loss?

Can you try with another client device and see if you get packet loss on that one too?
