  1. Hello, I'd figure I'd give this an update, the issue of the internet randomly disconnecting has seemingly come back. I've been checking my firewall, and it is no longer blocking anything now. So I'm thinking that the firewall going crazy may have been a symptom and not necessarily a cause of what is going on. I've noticed that this issue seems to happen when my internet is under high usage (Ie. watching videos, communicating with friends, while Downloading 50+gb worth of games off of steam, which unfortunately in this day in age, most modern games are by themselves 50+gb.) and once it goe

  4. I've been having some issues for a while, where my internet will randomly craps out completely. Usually windows will give an error that the default gateway is not available. I've run dozens of virus checks and other attempts to see if it's anything malicious, but I haven't found anything remotely suspicious. I decided to check ESET's firewall to see if that was causing issues, and I found that when my internet craps out, I usually get 200+ (often over 300) instances of svchost.exe being blocked, in addition to various other regular programs (such as steam, System discovery, etc.).
