My laptop has been having a weird problem connecting to websites at times, I don't think it is necessarily a issue with Windows 10 since I bought my laptop in 2012 from Best Buy it had Windows 7 Pre-Installed and it had the same issue back then occasionally, last year I upgraded to Windows 10 for free since they offered it to Windows 7 & 8 users who were eligible for the upgrade. I think its either a settings problem or a network adapter problem or something like that. I tether my laptop to my Android phone because high speed internet is not available at my address and dial up is obsolete now days so tethering is my only option. I'm not sure if it does it on wired network as I can't try since I tether to phone.
My hardware: Acer Aspire 4339 with Windows 10 installed.
Wireless ethernet adapter: Atheros AR5B95 Wireless Network Adapter (with latest Driver: 10.0.0.329)
What happens: Browser seems to hang sometimes (not freezing but loading page loading icon spins counter clockwise, makes me think its trying to send information, not like its trying to receive), the weird part is it seems like every time I experience it I can go to task bar and right click the wifi symbol and click Troubleshoot problems and its like it cuts loose and starts loading, I've noticed this works numerous times that I've tried it..
So what is the problem or how can I find out and what can I do to fix it?
I did the same thing with a previous driver from Microsoft which is why I installed the official driver from Atheros, but it still does it.
