    So for a while now I have been experiencing this problem and I can barely do anything, Youtube works fine but anything else takes either excrutiatingly long to load or fails to load in the first place, such as game servers. (Blizzard with Overwatch as an example / or Steam and Discord which I can connect to neither of)
    My PC is connected by LAN Cable and the operating system is windows 10.
    I already tried the obvious things such as resetting the router but that didnt work, neither did un- and re- plugging the LAN cable.
    I also changed my IPV4 to a static IP and DNS and my IPV6 DNS which also didn't resolve my problem.
    Then I tried to run the commands "ipconfig/release" and then "ipconfig/renew" as well as "netsh winsock reset" and "netsh int ip reset" in cmd.
    IPv4 Properties now:
    IP address:
    Subnet mask:
    Default gateway:
    Preferred DNS server:
    Alt DNS server:
    IPv6 Properties:
    Preferred DNS server: 2001:4860:4860::8888
    Alt DNS server: 2001:4860:4860::8844
    The troubleshooter for internet connections is saying :
    "The connection between your access point, router, or cable modem and the internet is broken. The network gateway is accessible, but windows couldn't receive network traffic from the Internet."
    I'd greatly appreciate any help you guys can offer me and hope that we can resolve this issue.
    PS. I already contacted my ISP multiple times as well and they said they can't detect any issue, and also sent us a new router which after changing out didn't help either.

    Have you taken your PC to somewhere else and tried connecting it there to eliminate it as source of problem?
    Can you connect to your router and check it settings?
    Generally you can connect to your router by typing in to address bar of you internet browser (IE, Edge, Chrome, etc.) You will need to know username and password for router (generally in manual). Check settings in there - make sure it is getting and IP address from ISP - it won't be in 192.168.x.x range.
