Greetings to anyone who takes the trouble to read this post!
For a while now, I’ve been having an annoying situation with my Wi-Fi at home. I did some research, but I can’t find any useful tips on Internet, so I was wondering if anyone has any ideas for helping me.
It’s like that: We have three laptops at home, all running Windows 10, as well as a host of other devices (smartphones, tablets, Chromecast), which all connect, via the Wi-Fi, to the Internet. The phones, tablets and Chromecasts usually rarely have a problem connecting to the Internet but, often, if one laptop is switched off/has gone to sleep and is woken up, it will connect to the Wi-Fi but a yellow triangle will appear on the Network icon on the bottom right hand corner of the task bar, it will say “No Internet Connection” and the thing will not go on the Internet. This usually happens when one or both of the other laptops are connected to the Internet. The problem goes away by simply resetting (unplug and plug in again) the router, but then one of the other laptops might lose its Internet connection.
The thing is annoying; restarting the router when you want to get on the Internet interrupts the connection for all the other users and if you keep doing that it gets on everybody’s nerves. The only thing the provider suggested, when I managed to get through to them, was switching to a different “Channel” on the router, but I have done that several times and it has not really changed anything.
I would really be grateful for any tips that might work. Thanks in advance!
