comment Closing laptop lid slows/hangs wifi
Thanks for the answer. I'm currently experimenting with the laptop completely removed from the area and kept switched off. I'll check out the dual band issue you mention as well.

No changes whatsoever, no new devices which could interfere. Running out of ideas!

comment Closing laptop lid slows/hangs wifi
The close lid option is "do nothing" already because I have the laptop connected to a larger monitor. All power management options on the cards are turned off. There has been no problem with this setup for the last 9 months or so, this intermittent problem started happening maybe 2 weeks ago.

It just happened again and I got the Chrome "Website wouldn't load" error with a strange error code: ERR_SPDY_PING_FAILED

So the DNS looks fine, no issues resolving. Of course, now I'm actively testing this issue it decides not to hang for the last 30 minutes!

@Ramhound Interesting, I've had the laptop a couple of years so perhaps I should be aware of that.

@DarthAndroid How would I check if this is the case?

@Ramhound I judge the hang because as I'm browsing various websites everything stops and I get the loading icon. Sometimes I get the "cannot load webpage" error too and my webmail gives me a "cannot connect right now" during the hangs
