SInce I bought the HP Pavilion Notebook T1E85EA#A I have suffered from unreliable wifi. I had put this down to my router however I have replicated the issue on another connection/router.
The wifi always shows as connected but the throughput seems to stop. I cant acess any web pages, cant access the router and unable to ping them command prompt as well. After a while it will suddenly start working again albeit the page loads will appear slow at times.
Today I decided to try using ethernet as well however I have found this has exactly the same problem.
Some of the diagnostics I have tried are as follows:
Alternate connection method (ethernet)
Alternate broadband connection
Manually specifying tcp/ip settings
Updating drivers (no new drivers found and the ones installed are from 2015), Tried from the HP software, windows update as well as in the device properties.
Restoring windows back to factory spec but the issue continues.
Is there anything else I can do to rectify the issue or should I send it back to HP?

Absolutely no better at all. In fact it just took me 10 minutes to be able to get a connection to get to this forum to post this message.
It appears to be particularly bad if the laptop wakes from sleep or if I havenot browsed any sites for a period of time but is not isolated to this.
