after all of my other issues with my router and a new replacement router not working, i tried a Linksys EA7300 router.  SUCCESS, but.....

 

 

 

the 3 phones, 3 tablets and 2 Win 10 laptops seem to be flawless.  my Win7 computer keeps "timing out" when trying to surf.  it seems to reset itself pretty regularly but not ALWAYS right away...

 

im getting 74 Mbps download speeds over WiFi so thats pretty good, as long as it stays running...

 

it sometimes will work for a few minutes sometimes as long as 13 minutes!

 

usually will take several minutes to get back online...

i updated my Firefox and it still times out

 

i downloaded and installed Chrome and it still times out

 

there must be something else i need to set / adjust to keep going.  im not losing internet access (according to the pop up "connection" window on the system tray) but after a while, i get the "page not found" screen. so i usually just keep hitting the refresh (circled arrow in the address bar/window) until it reconnects...

Maybe a Driver Issue ?

Check Device Manager for the Wireless Adapter and Rollback to a previous Driver if one is available.

 

If not ,  download a older Driver Version , i did this on my HP G6 wireless and solved my similar issue.

So try that  { you will still have the current one to roll back to  anyway }.

 

Or download Minitoolbox first  from BC 

Check Boxes -  Reset Proxys x 2 and Flush DNS and List Devices { Only Problems } and run.

 

Post the results if required for someone to look at and advise you further.

Are we to understand...that all devices accessing via this router...reflect these timing-out errors?

@ Hamluis:    Only on his Win 7 PC /  the others - the 3 phones, 3 tablets and 2 Win 10 laptops seem to be flawless

Try Installing another driver from the Dell Website.
