I am posting a question here after attempting to fix this issue from several recommendations given on different blog sites(error still persists).
I am using an HP Pavilion 15 and for more than a year, I have been having this issue where my laptop suddenly drops internet, the wifi icon below changes to a globe icon and it shows my wifi name when I load up the connection list but with the message "no internet, secured". The only way to connect is to manually disconnect and then reconnect it and then it works all fine.
Now I know that my router/internet is not at fault as
1. I have changed routers
2. All my other laptops in my household (3 more) never experience the internet dropping.
Can anyone please suggest what could possibly be the problem here and how about do I go fixing it ?
I understnad that you are facing issues with wifi.
What is the product number of your computer? (Ensure you don't share any personal information such as serial, phone number, email ID, etc..).
Here's a guided troubleshooter that will help fix this issue: Click here
Try these steps:
Go to Device manager > select the WIFI drivers under network adapter> Right click go to properties > Under properties go to Power Management Tab> Uncheck "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power".
If issue persists, continue with the below steps:
If your computer has a wireless key or button on or near the keyboard and the wireless activity light is off or amber in color, then press the key or button to enable your wireless adapter. This key might be the F10 key, F12 key or labeled with a symbol of an airplane.
If wireless activity comes on or the activity light turns blue, you have enabled wireless on your system. Try connecting to the Internet again. If problems persist, continue using these steps.

I had unchecked the power save option a couple of months ago but the problem still exists.
The laptop has never been in airplane mode.
Even during surfing the internet, when I click on a link, it would stop loading. when I look at the lower right corner, the globe comes back, then I have to disconnect and reconnect to the same connection and all works fine.
