I have a Dell Inspiron 580 running Windows 10 (it was an upgrade from Windows 7). I generally use Google Chrome for my browsing. I connect to the Internet with a Netgear wireless router. I'm having a few problems:
1) The router seems to drop intermittently throughout the day. The only way to get it to reconnect is to pull it out of the USB slot and reinsert it and it reconnects. It's a real pain. I do not have an ethernet hook up available. I have 2 USB inputs on the front of my computer. One has the WiFi adapter at all times; I switch things in and out of the other one periodically. When I pull out whatever USB cable is plugged in to the one next to the WiFi adapter it always seems to cause the internet to drop.
2) I get page unresponsive warnings associated with Shockwave. I only have the Chrome version enabled.
3) Sometimes the computer hangs up and gets very laggy. It almost feels like the resources (perhaps memory) are getting sucked up by something.
Any help would be appreciated. I don't want to get a new computer if I can avoid it.
