    Hello,first of all I would like to thank you in advance for any help.Im using windows 10.My desktop shows that I’m connected to the internet but I cannot play online games and surf the internet.For example when I open chrome if I visit YouTube it connects immediately but on any other site it keeps loading and at the end it says error.At the same time the another desktop I have has internet without problems.I tried to reboot router and factory reset too.Nothing changed.I made reset of network setting from my desktop.Still the same.Tried specific DNS again the problem.Yesterday for example the internet connection was ok and at the night the problem appeared again.Today it was ok in the morning and now I have the same issue without changing something.Does anyone have any idea what can it be?

    I do not do games, so I will bow out, hoping some gamer will chime in.

    So you have an intermittent connection problem. Is the desktop computer connected by wire or wireless?

    Well those games are not browser based are they?

    What happens if you go to any other website, like abc.com and msn.com?

    I'd rule out hardware first.
    1. Change the ethernet cable that plugs into your computer and the router. (Yes, wires go bad.)
    2. Change the port on the router that the computer is plugged into. (Yes a port on a router can go bad).
    3. Check the lights on the NIC on your computer. (NICs fail too).

    Trying to fix a hardware problem (bad cable, port or NIC) by reinstalling software won't fix it.
    So, I always advise to check hardware before reinstalling Windows.

    and yet, you finally mentioned this
    Sorry but that is a big change you didn't mention.
