My car, phone, tablet, some GPS tracker and maybe more. Point? You may want to tell the forum more about your failing device or computer.

That's not enough to nail what it going on.

At 7 years old it's likely to be either hardware or software. For example I run across over reaching security suites that block the internet as they expire. I also run across malware and failing hardware.

What you've shared so far doesn't give us a direction to go.

Do other PCs, phones work OK? If so try something cheap like some USB WiFi stick. I'm going to share a link about a real stumper where we tried all the usual but a stick was the fix.

Read to see all we tried and the fix was the usual 10 buck stick.
