    I have been having a problem for a long time where my internet stops working on my laptop (Lenovo ThinkPad E540) until I restart the internet. It says I’m still connected it just doesn’t work. The wifi disconnects any where after 10 minutes - 2 hours of use.

    If I use the wifi on a different device (my iPhone or iPad) the internet works fine, and if I take my laptop to someone’s house it connects and stays connected without issues.

    If you laptop works in somebody else's house, then it should be a router problem. You may not need a new router yet. Just connect to the router via Ethernet cable ( so it doesn't disconnect half way while configuring stuff ) and change Wi-Fi settings like the channel, disable and re-enable Wi-Fi. It may just need a reboot.
