My wifi on my laptop keeps dropping - most obvious when playing online games. It will work again if I click on the wifi logo, click troubleshooting and resetting.

 

It doesn't seem affecting my other devices.

 

I moved house a year ago and the issue started. It never occurred in my previous house when it uses fiber. Now I am using VDSL.

 

Everything stays the same (laptop, modem, ISP).

 

I use those driver softwares and all my drivers are up to date.

 

Can someone please suggest what I should do to troubleshoot? Thanks

I can suggest changing the wifi channel as a test (taking a note of what it's set to now if you need to revert). I found this with one device only - constantly dropping. I changed the channel and it stopped. Nothing else was impacted.
