Wireless connection keeps disconnecting while idle

OMEN by HP 17-cb0006ng

My wifi connection keeps turning off when I am idle or away from keyboard, but it reconnects when I move the mouse or click on the network icon. This is really annoying when trying to watch Youtube or Netflix. 

It started doing this the moment I opened the package and did all the updates. I downloaded nothing except Chrome and went straight to Youtube and Netflix to watch videos.


-All my drivers and windows is up to date.

-My power is plugged in.

-When I'm working on constantly on Wifi it doesn't disconnect

-I even went into the settings to uncheck "power saving mode" like many of the threads I have found on the internet.


What other options are there because this is quite annoying for someone trying to enjoy a paid subscription of Netflix.

@Banhien Thank you for the reply. I did try that method the very first day of operation after it was doing the disconnecting. Any other options? I tried updating the drivers also.

Is it possible it could be the router? Which is weird because I never had this problem with any other computers or laptops with the same router.
