So I have 7 people in my household all using the WiFi, and my pc is the only thing that does not get WiFi, so I do not think it is the router. But just in case, I have a Verizon router. It will occasionally receive WiFi signal(for example it had WiFi for about 20 mins today) but after that it loses WiFi for a long time. I have an Archer T5E wireless Adapter. My pc says it is “Connected and secured” but it does not receive signal. I can search on Google but I cannot open any links/websites. Only the Google Search bar works, and nothing else on the entire pc. I have constantly had to reset or “repair” the WiFi adapter through the online program(which restarts my pc) but it never works. I have tried multiple other wireless routers too. None of them have worked. Pls help me.

Please check the power settings for the wireless adapter and see if they are set to maximum performance:

I think there are also power management settings for network adapters in general:

And for the rest of the components, different power plans:

Are the antennas secure? Properly oriented and positioned?

What is the signal strength?

How well or poorly does the wireless work with the computer 10 to 15 feet from the router with a clear path between router and adapter's antennas?
