We recently got Gigabit internet and over the past two weeks or so the 5GHz has been dropping out on my computer...

 

It connects fine, works for a few minutes then drops out completely all of a sudden. When hovering over the network, it says "No internet, secured" but still has the white range bars as if it's connected to the network (and if you hover over the internet icon on task bar it shows the network name which should mean there is a connection there.

 

Because of this I am connecting to 2.4GHz WiFi (which there are no connection issues with) but I'd love to resume connecting to the 5GHz network as obviously the speeds are much faster...

 

Unfortunately I am also too far away from the router to connect via ethernet and be done with the issue...

 

Below are my computer specs. I have tried reinstalling the WiFi driver...

 

For example, to test the issue I tried connecting to the 5GHz WiFi just a moment ago to see what was going to happen...

 

It connected, was fine for a minute or so, came up with "no internet, secured" for a further 5 minutes then resumed being connected...

 

It's been about 15 minutes and it hasn't dropped out again (yet) but I know it's on a matter of time.

 

 

 

I've also done a wlan report - if you need a screenshot of another part of the report, let me know...
