Sorry if this is answered elsewhere, I looked here http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/601102/windows-10-wifi-connects-but-no-internet-access-no-internet-secured/page-3?hl=%2Binternet+%2Bconnection+%2Bissue#entry4072030 but couldn't find a lot of the options it suggested trying so I've had to start this post.
I have had loads of problems with my internal Network adapter. Having sought help on here I've had to eventually concede it's probably a hardware failure and as such I thought I'd spend £5 on a USB adapter instead. All has been working fine for weeks and now suddenly I am getting an issue where it stays connected to the router but says on the WIFI list (when I click bottom right of the screen) "connected, no internet connection". Now the router is connected fine to the internet and usually disconnecting and re-connecting my adapter to my router several times fixes it but it's very annoying. It will then be fine for a few minutes and will disconnect again with the "no internet connection" warning.
I have Win 10 and I've not changed anything with either hardware or software to make this happen. My adapter is a Realtek RTL8191SU Wireless LAN 802.11n USB 2.0 adapter and my router is a Huawei HG633 on TalkTalk (if that makes a difference) and I'm UK based.
Can anyone tell me what the optimum settings would be for both the adapter and the router? I have an intermediate knowledge of computers and this kind of technical stuff is a bit beyond me as I'm not sure what a lot of the stuff behind the "properties" button means when it comes to networking and internet.
