My Wifi Connection keeps dropping, I'm using a usb adaptor on a gaming desk top and the internet comes on and then randomly disconnects again? When I open the Network sharing center it shows my usb adaptor and ethernet unplugged realtek gaming family controller? I don't want a wired connection I want to use the wifi? Any ideas?

When it disconnects from the internet in the corner it still shows the wifi as being connected? but the page loads saying hmm we can't reach this page . I have windows 10 and it's a brand new built pc.

Please help!

Thanks

If you aren't using the ethernet adapter, simply disable it in the BIOS.

Typically not, but if it's disabled then it wouldn't be possible.

I've spoken to the makers of my computer and they are blaming virgin media saying it must be the wifi connection? Although my phone and everything else connects fine?
