I just wondered if someone could tell me why my I am now very often not able to access web pages and the only way round this problem is to disconnect and then reconnect the wireless via the settings in Windows 8.1.After doing this the web pages load normally but eventually the problem re-occurs. Other pc's and tablets have no issues with my router only this particular pc which is only a year old. I'm using Chrome but all browsers are affected.

I'm wondering if it is a power management problem. Click on start button - type in device manager, right click on wireless driver, click on propertiesthen on power management tab. Is there a tick by "allow the computer to turn of this device to save power"? If so uncheck it.
