I got a new laptop just over a month ago and ever since I've been having an odd problem with the internet connection. It's not all the time - it seems to happen at completely random times but it is very annoying now!
I first noticed it when I downloaded Dropbox and Chrome installers. (they're both the kind where you download a small .exe file then they connect to download the full installer) both reported that I wasn't connected to the internet and couldn't continue with the installation. I'm also having problems with iTunes downloading App updates and iOS updates. Itunes reports that there is no network connection or the download becomes corrupt because there was no response from the server. I downloaded the Box sync app but can never get it to sign in because it is saying there may be a connection issue.
I'm also having problems sometimes loading websites, it'll be working fine one minute then all of a sudden I'll try to load a page and will get a page saying that there was an issue and to try reloading - that usually solves the problem but I'm at a loss as to what might be causing this to happen. There's also a problem with connecting when I try to check for solutions to problems via the Action Center.
I've tried pausing my security software but that doesn't help ,the WiFi signal on my laptop is always on full, my broadband speed is very good and I'm not getting a problem when connected to WiFi on my iPad so I'm thinking it has to be a problem with the new laptop but I can't figure it out and don't know where to start.
Can someone suggest anything I could try please?
