Every so often I get stationed away from home and live on base. I have a laptop that I usually bring with me however it is having issues with the public wifi that the base has. I thought this was a problem with the wifi on the base but it is also happening with the wifi in the hotel im staying at as well. I would connect to the public wifi and every so often it would just stop working. It would not longer be able to connect to the DNS server. To fix this I would just disconnect and reconnect to the wifi. This would temporarily fix the connection for about 10 minutes or so until it would stop working again and I would have to disconnect and reconnect. For context my phone or my xbox has no issue at all with the wifi. I have updated my wireless adapter drivers and i've made sure that windows firewall isnt blocking certain connections with public networks. Not of that has helped so im not sure why my laptop is acting like this.
