Hi there!

I am seeking help for a problem that has started recently for me, I have a steamable link example of it below

https://streamable.com/q2b17e

The problem is that the internet keeps cutting off (I can not find consistently in its timing), it could be in 2-5 minutes or 40 minutes, either way I can not use the internet on my desktop (It does not happen on my other devices) for a long period of time without having to disconnect from the internet & reconnecting or restarting my PC (Sometimes reconnecting does not do the trick), this would grant me normal fast internet access again temporarily and I am not sure what restarting the PC does to the network that allows this, I would like help in figuring this out

If it doesn't cut out, it feels like it is struggling to connect as you can see in the streamable link

I feel like this happened because I messed with my firewall (Vipre Advanced Security)

Recently I have been cleaning up and going over all my computer's settings, when I opened my antivirus (Vipre Advanced Security), I defaulted the firewall so it can learn from the start again and I been seeing problems ever since, now even if I turn off the firewall, the problem persists

Thank you for reading and appreciate any help I can get!
