    Hi so recently my PC has been losing connection after a few min of startup, shows a "no internet, secured". I use an AMD PCI Controller, or an ethernet cable, no one have worked. I've tried updating my drivers though no attempt is successful, have been using things like driver easy or like your usual YouTube look up with no prevail. I could not be using it right or could be a whole diffrent problem.

    Whenever the network icon says 'no internet' but does not have a red X, it means you are connected, but it cannot translate web addresses like 'google.com' into an ip address. IP addresses are needed to traverse the internet. The piece that translates names like google.com into ip addresses is called a DNS server. Every ISP is running at least one. And there are some public DNS servers too, like Google's.

    Try manually setting a DNS server ip to google's 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4. See here for how to: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-your-pcs-dns-settings-windows-10
