My new desktop has been having this issue where when I start to download a large file. It’ll automatically cut out after a few. It doesn’t cut out when I’m watching a video or something small. The WiFi in my house is fine, and when the pc WiFi cuts out, the WiFi still works on other devices. I’ve tried a lot of things, and it doesn’t seem to work. I’m running Windows 10 pro currently. The computer itself doesn’t have a WiFi adapter built-in, so I have an 802.11 dongle.

Here what I’ve tried:

  • Updating WiFi driver
  • Disallow power management to shut down adaptor
  • Checked the bandwidth connection from the internet. (580 down, 340 up)

Not sure what to do now.
