It could be anything like malware/viruses to operating system bad configuration. Make sure the operating system is well updated, clean, and latest good drivers properly installed and not conflicted.


Online gaming and torrent downloads require continuous internet connection to first connect to servers/peers then activity starts. Wifi could be disconnecting and reconnecting due to bad drivers or bad configuration.

Windows is up to date
I already use Malwarebytes
All driver are up to date too

And sometimes there is yellow triangle in the wifi icon. I check the connection by pinging my ip with cmd, sometime it's says "Request time out" and i got high ping too, but it decrease to normal again then got high ping again and it keeps repeating or in the middle of connection i will get "Request Time Out"

Right click on the network icon and choose Troubleshoot Problems. See how it goes.

Thanks! It's 2019 all of the sudden.


Try to forget all WIFI connections and reconnect to the network re-entering the password.


Try going to Network and Sharing Center => click on the WIFI connection colored in blue => Properties => double click on Inter Protocol Version and make sure the two options "obtain an IP/DNS server address automatically" are selected.

*Yea, and maybe i have a record for sleeping from 2018 until 2019

Huhu, i think should re install my windows, but i gotta make sure my internet provider was bad. My internet provider is kinda douch3. I hate it -_-

If my internet provider was bad, so i will complain it and they will fix it for me, and if it's not still work reinstall my windows.

I will give you another info again later !
Thx for helping !

Best of luck with that.


If the internet is working fine on other computers as I what think you meant in the original post, it could be your computer.

Aha!

The problem is my internet provider, i try to hotspot from my phone and it's work, but not with my wifi, but i can play online game on my laptop with wifi, but not my computer.

Is that mean there is something blocking the port/dns ?

I try to search it on internet but i can't understand when finding blocked port.
