Omen Laptop crashes internet for the entire house

HP Recommended
OMEN by HP 15-dh0004la
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I have a problem with my laptop. I arrived here today and since I first connected I had issues within 30 minutes. My internet works perfectly for a moment until it disconnects every device in the house and becomes unable to connect to the same network again. I have tried to look for a fix but found none. The problem only started occurring when I used this computer and does not occur with any other device. I called my ISP and they said they fixed the network issue, which is why I think it is a laptop issue. It is an OMEN dh-150004la, malware scans don't detect anything at all as well. 


I'd appreciate a solution as nothing I have tried has worked, such as installing the latest drivers, uninstalling then reinstalling the existing ones.

Thank you for your help, unfortunately I still have the problem. I did everything that was asked and it worked fine (albeit a little slow) but after a router reset that happened in my house it crashed everything within minutes. I tried following the steps again but nothing came of it.

@Pjfa Here's a few things you need to do, to resolve this issue once and for all:

  • Disable all firewalls and antivirus programs including windows ten's own firewalls and antivirus programs.
  • try safe mode with networking to check if the Internet connection is fast there. Try both wired and wireless options.
  • Link for safe mode with networking is given in my earlier post. Please try that.
  • Uninstall the existing network adapters and update the bios chipset and network adapters (both wired and wireless) from this link : click here to find and install the same
  • Please try to change the router's broadcasting channel to another value. try different working channels. that might help for WiFi only.
  • Try performing a clean boot in windows 10 using this link: Click here for steps
  • Try this link fixing network connections in windows 10: Click here
  • Then create a new user profile and try to connect both through WiFi and using a wired connection.
  • Then as a last ,resort try to perform a system recovery to factory setting and check if this helps after backing up all your files.

Let me know how that pans out,
