Question Internet drops out but Wifi still connected, signal strong

On one of my Win10 machines, the internet keeps dropping out, though the connection to the local network is fine and wifi signal strong. If I leave the laptop for a few hours and come back, the internet is always gone. Sometimes it drops while in use. When this happens, I can get it back immediately by disconnecting and reconnecting to the network. Any idea how to fix? There is a wifi TV in the same room as the laptop and it never has an issue, so I blame the laptop itself, not the network or router.
