    Losing Internet Connection out of nowhere


    I'm not sure if anyone is affected by this bug on Windows 10 but in the past 2 months, while browsing or doing any other activity, my computer would suddently lose internet connection and fail to detect any network (it would just constantly load without getting any results despite my router being connected and my drivers being activated aswell). If I try to reboot or shutdown my computer when this happens, it gets stuck on the shutdown screen for several hours or even days; the only way to bypass this problem and get the internet connection back online is to force a shutdown.
    Anyone here can help me fix this problem??

    Is it a Ethernet connection? You could also try a different DNS address( either google DNS or Open DNS).

    I currently using an wireless connection. Now that you mention it, this only started to happen once I started using google DNS to visit some blocked websites in my country.

    You can check whether you have latest Wi-Fi drivers in your Device manager, if you don't have, get the latest driver and install.

    I have the latest drivers installed yes. Not windows 10 compatible as there are none for my device so I'm using windows 8 drivers.
