I now keep loosing my Wi-Fi Broadband connection, it now only lasts a few minutes before disconnecting. Often the 'diagnose' troubleshooter works to get it back but not always. When I ordered our weekly groceries over the internet I virtually had to 'reset the adapter' for every item in the shopping list --- it is quite a pain.
Following advice I tried changing the setting to Google DNS and thought it had worked, for a couple of days, then was back to constantly re-setting. My driver is shown as being uptodate.
I know it is the computer not the broadband service. When it disconnects I continue to get uninterrupted Wi-Fi on my Windows Lumia phone, so restarting the router has no effect.
Advice would be very welcome.

It is a Wi-Fi connection, and yes the Lumia phone is not affected, it has remained connected throughout (it has been a useful 'life-line' at times).
However, I have been connecting OK to my broadband service so maybe the problem has gone away --- fingers crossed. I have not done anything special, just repeatedly using the troublwshooter and diagnose / reset the wi-fi adapter. It is working now (obviously!) which is just as well as I have been struggling for two hours to get my antivirus re-activated with the help of Chat sessions, which went horribly wrong --- everything I posted got translated to an unknown foreign language, even the characters were altered entirely, so that neither I nor technicial advisor could understand any of it. Very strange.
