So bought a computer just over a month and until last no problems at all with it, until now. Presently my computer claim to be connected to the computer ( the minibar icon shows full connectivity ) however when I attempt to load a page one of 2 things Will happen, the basics are that the page won't load. It will either attempt to load I defiantly, or give me an error message ( if I use chrome it says that the network changed). I howeve do not have any such issue on other devices ( iPad, iPhone work fine and my flat mates have no issue either). I have however found a temporary work around to the issuen, if I go into device manager and to the network adapter category and manually update my Broadcom network adapter then the problem will cease for about 5 minutes, before starting a new. I have exhausted all the options I know of and am hoping that I can get some help on here.

Check to make sure the drivers for the adapter are up to date. If possible, try swapping it out for another adapter -- if it's not the driver it may be a hardware issue.
