    Start > Settings > Network & Internet > scroll to bottom of page on right hand side > Network Reset

    A network reset may mean you need to re-install any special communication software you maybe using, things like VPN's.

    i did the network reset and something weird happened.a new network got created.my normal network that I actually connect to its called cosmote home and a cosmote home 2 got created.another weird thing is that when my pc starts and I am connected to a network(doesn't matter whether I am connected to cosmote home or 2) it stops working like it used to.but if I then connect to the other network it works

    Go into Networks and Internet and forget your old network.

    Since the reset is the gateway dropping?

    I don't think that I should do that.like I said no matter what the network is when I start up the pc after a few minutes the gateway drops.if I then switch to the other network (doesn't matter which network it's )then it works

    First thing to check with network dropouts is the power saving settings.

    navigate here Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Network Connections

    Right click on the adaptor you are using and select properties

    Select Configure

    the last tab is Power Management, open this and make sure that the "allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is NOT checked ..

    OK back out and hopefully the network should be more stable

    There is no harm in forgetting a network. It just finds it again.

    Will be interested in seeing if Power settings resolve.
