Here's the NORMAL home network.

Broadband (cable, dsl, etc.) -> Router -> PCs.

You would never lose internet on any other machine in a normal setup. Did you have an abnormal setup?

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
