Windows 8.1, direct connection to router through ethernet cable.

32 G of memory.

Every few days, all of a sudden browser & email can't connect to the Internet. Makes no difference which browser - Firefox, Chrome, IE, or email program. 

But network icon shows Internet access.

Only thing that cures it is a reboot, which takes about 10 minutes by the time everything has reloaded.

Any cure short of a reboot?  

Not sure if I've eliminated the disk page file - I think that was Knowbrainer recommendation for speed.  Might the memory be getting full?   Should I restore the page file?

Thanks for any help.

We discontinued recommending a specific setting or eliminating virtual memory after Windows XP. Window 7 through 10 have gotten very good at managing virtual memory. We don't believe this has anything to do with accessing the Internet. This problem sounds more like a hardware issue. Have you tried bypassing your router and making a direct connection to the Internet, for test purposes? Bypassing your router would help eliminate possible culprits and might just identify your problem. Routers have been known to gradually die
