I have been having this problem ever since December of 2016, or maybe even before.
The computer can connect to the internet on occasion, but will then have times of completely disconnecting. It also occurs during times when a lot of internet up/down time is occurring constantly, and then disconnects (Such as when playing games). Waiting a day or so temporarily fixes the issue for about an hour.
I have checked my computer's services. I do not have the following services on my Services.msc panel:
Ancillary Func Driver for Winsock
NetIO Legacy TDI Support Driver
I went to device manager and checked for NetIO Legacy TDI Support Driver, and, even after Viewing Hidden Devices, niether NetIO Legacy TDI Support Driver nor "Non Plug And Play Devices" showed up.
I checked to see if "Proxy Server" settings was unchecked, and it was unchecked.
The strangest thing I found that DHCP and DNS protocols are all up and running fine.
My Computer uses Wifi only (I do not have a working cable line in my room to hook up a Router or Modem for better internet access), and the fact that I cannot use Ethernet makes it difficult for me to determine if it's simply a long-distance connection problem, or an "all distance" connection problem. We use cable one provider (the best they can give us is 150 Mbps speed over the entire area, with 500 GB of data) but I'm trying to switch to Century Link, who offers 40Mbps directly to my home with unlimited data. I'm also getting the
TP-Link AC1900 Wireless Dual Band PCI-Express Adapter with Beamforming Technology (Archer T9E),
TP-Link AD7200 Wireless Wi-Fi Tri-Band Gigabit Router (Talon AD7200) by TP-Link, and the
TP-Link AC1750 DOCSIS 3.0 (16x4) Wireless Wi-Fi Cable Modem Router, Certified for Comcast XFINITY, Time Warner Cable, Cox Communications, Charter, Spectrum (Archer CR700) by TP-Link, in the hopes that my internet will speed up dramatically. However, all this will be pointless if it's a problem with my computer (doesn't seem to affect anyone else in my house, only me, My PC, and my Ipad 2 original)
I want to rule out that it's not my computer, and is, instead, simply bad internet connection causing lags and constant disconnects.
So, I'll follow the troubleshooting steps you'll give me (if any).
Also, please note that even after scanning for and removing all viruses, malware, registry problems, and adware/spyware, I still have the following things pop up on virtually all forums and webpages:
Adware.PNG 513.6KB 1 downloads
I want to make sure this is normal, but it appears it is not. I took my computer into a professional IT technician, and he said he fixed it, but the problem persists (he said it was malware)
EDIT: Strange, I don't see anything listed in Internet Services, among other things.
