Hi A and welcome
I suspect you are using homegroup fro networking. If so you are using IPv6, which has been shown to cause slow downs, drops, and random other things. Homegroup is the only reason that you culd need to run IPv6. I is really easy to change it. To do that all you need to do is to go back into networking and set up a "workgroup" instead. After you have set it up and working you can disable IPv6, and then keill the homegroup. Workgroup is more stabile and easier to use
Let us know if you need help with setting that up
