Why is my internet dropping every few minutes only on this device?
I couldn't find it in the list but I have an MSI GF63 Thin 9SC. This problem just started yesterday and I can't get it to stop. I'm using wifi. I have Norton 360 and I thought that may be causing the problem so I uninstalled it and the issue was still there. I flushed the DNS and that seemed to help but shortly after, it just went back to the disconnecting. When the problem first started, it seemed to be longer stretches of time where it was disconnected. It's just a few seconds now and then the page will reload. I can't figure out what the problem is but I have no updates available, the router is working just fine for everyone else, I have good internet speed, the internet is not down, and I'm not sure what to do.
I saw somewhere that a wifi network password that isn't "well-protected" may be vulnerable to people joining the network and clogging it. I will say that Norton keeps giving me an update to change my network password. But like I said, when I uninstalled Norton, I was still having the disconnecting issue (and no one else using the same wifi network is having this issue).
