Good morning

My gaming PC unfortunately is on Wifi as it is quite far from our setup, im not sure if that has anything to do with this, but figured any info would help to diagnose whatever is going on.

On my PC, no matter what i am doing or what i have open, if i open either File Explorer, or Google Chrome (new window or new tab usually), 90% of the time it kills my wifi connection momentarily. Ive looked it up numerous times, and all i have found is people saying "check task manager to see what happens". Yes, all of the network %'s drop to 0% for a second or two when it goes out. Nowhere has offered a solution though. If this is strictly a wireless network issue, then i guess im screwed lol. But if yall have any ideas or fixes im willing to try anything! Getting disconnected mid game is NOT FUN!

Thank you!
Whit

Open Network and Internet settings by right clicking on the wifi icon...
Then at the bottom click on network reset... it will take 5 mins... then check whether the connection is stable or not...
