    Internet slow/not working on one PC


    I am using Windows 8.1 and all the computers in the network have good speed but only one PC has internet issues.
    I even reinstalled Windows but that didn't solve my issue.
    I even reset the router, upgraded its firmware but all in vain.

    If I disable the network adapter and enable it then the internet works for like five minutes but then it stops working again. I even changed the wire connecting the PC to the router.
    I have also disabled the firewall.


    Please help.

    Go to the computer manufacturer support website or wifi adapter website, download their driver. Most likely it is the Microsoft Signed driver, that is causing this issue.

    That could be the case and I am trying the solution you suggested right now, but I don't think that is the problem cause I am facing the same issue with both WiFi and wired connection.
