    Internet Staying Connected Problem; HP Laptop


    Grandson has a hp Laptop about a year old. W10

    Wouldn't connect, but I was lucky enough to note in their manual that the Airplane Logo key controlled
    access to the internet, and was an On/Off key for. Youngster, and must have pressed it inadvertently; easy to do.
    That solved that problem for about a month.

    Now, new problem:

    Connects for about a few seconds to 1/2 minute, and then kicks him off. Every time. Using Comcast.
    Same with house WiFi, or an Ethernet cable to Comcast modem.

    Two other pc's in house work fine.

    Any thoughts as to what might be the problem, and what to check would
    be very appreciated.

    Please connect the computer using Ethernet.

    Overnight run the test while connected using wifi and ethernet cable detached.

    In the AM if it has made two or more loops click esc > run any component test (many are interactive) as needed
