    internet won't work unless I reboot

    unusual problem has cropped up in my window 10 , use chrome
    (Chrome is up to date
    Version 120.0.6099.225 (Official Build) (64-bit)

    trouble is: my wifi icon( clamshell) by clock shows I'm on the internet. I can get to the first stage of a web site ( cache)
    but second layer won't open.. ( google main /second layer page).Unless I reboot the PC ..
    I've checked my aps running and the only big one open is malwareservice .

    I'd google the situation but the question would be too vague for google to find .. therefore I was hoping someone would know a 'work around' ..
    I've scanned for virus's / malware .. clean.. My main hardrive is 23% free . 16Gb ram / up to date on microsoft updates .
    should I flush my dns cache ..? maybe a sfc /scannow ?

    thanks

    This issue could be a Power configuration problem. What type of WiFi adapter does your computer have? Check the Power settings to make sure that your USB and WiFi and Network adapters are set to Never turn off.

    One way to check to make sure it is not your WiFi router/modem that is causing the issue would be to connect the computer to the router using a network cable. If you get the same issue when connected using a wired connection, it could be a router issue. I have all of my network equipment and computers on UPS systems, so that power drops do not cause problems.

    That is useful information.

    If other devices are working OK, with no dropouts or disconnects, then it looks like a computer issue. Did you check the Power settings for your WiFi Adapter and/or USB hardware? I would also check the Power settings for the hard drive(s), and make sure that they are Never set to Sleep. Post back the results of what you found for Power settings.
