    Strange network connectivity issues


    Hello all!

    I have been having some strange connectivity issues on my desktop. My gear and details below.

    RCN cable internet
    Netgear CM1000 cable modem
    TP-Link AC4000 wireless router
    ASUS 4x4 AC3100 PCIe wireless card
    Windows 10 Version 22H2 (OS Build 19045.2486)

    I am wireless with a fairly solid connection, I have never had any issues whatsoever with my current setup or any previous equipment I used with this PC but often times it takes very long to load any sort of webpage, it will sometimes time out or give me a DNS error, it's never consistent, very sporadic, sometimes it works just fine other times it does not. When I can get a speed test to run I can often get anywhere from 150-200 down and 10-20 up but it either takes forever to ever start or it doesn't work at all. Again it is hard to recreate the issue and it is rather sporadic. I am not quite sure what it is. Haven't gotten to testing hard wiring PC straight to my router and/or modem (I intend to tomorrow) but it seems my other devices work and the PC is the one that struggles? I have two TVs that are wireless, a Plex media server that is hard wired and 2 cell phones connecting via WiFi that all seem to work fine. Not sure what issue is but any guidance on potential fixes would be greatly appreciated!

    Loading webpages has zero to do with the LAN, it had go do with more with the connection your ISP has, its servers and the rest of the pipeline between you and the server you are trying to connect to.

    I can load webpages on my laptop and my wife's laptop just fine....no issues whatsoever. On my desktop however I constantly have to refresh a page to get it to load or wait several seconds/minutes. I get what you are saying that it has to do with the ISP but if it really did then all my devices would struggle, not just my PC.

    Are you using Hyper-V to run VMs?

    Are the DNS and firewall settings the same on both machines same as Internet settings and security software?
