Windows Central Question

Initially windows 10 was running fine until suddenly (I'm using Chrome) errors such as "DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NO_INTERNET" started occurring, while periodically the wifi kept disconnecting . After searching for and following some solutions this issue was fixed however now the internet is very slow. Admittedly I'm not technically adept at all however I believe something I changed may have made the wifi slow. I did the following things:

- Cleared chrome's cache
- Changed the DNS to google's and (which I am currently using) from the default (IPv4)
- Tried to update network adapter drivers (said there were no new versions when using the 'automatic search')
- Used cmd to run commands such as "ipconfig /flushdns"
- Tried performing a clean boot
- Also followed these instructions (http*://wind8apps.com/fix-error-code-dns_probe_finished_no_internet-windows-8-windows-10/ without the * )
- And maybe some other things that I can't remember

If this problem can't be resolved I'll just have to go back to windows 8.1, the internet is unbearably slow and I can't use ethernet instead of wifi.

Any help is appreciated, thank you.
