I have started to reinstall Debian, when I noticed that at the moment network was being set, wifi started to drop. Fresh Windows 10 on the same machine has no issues with wifi.

Goodbye Debian!

Just for the record, how did you install Windows 10 over Debian? I think you can't boot Windows 10 if any Linux is installed without using WoeUSB.

I haven't installed over Debian I guess... Debian was not completely installed as I have stopped the installation when I noticed the issues with wifi. I kept a separate partition for Windows next to ext4 and swap from the beginning.
Windows 10 boots directly now, Grub isn't showing anymore. I guess Linux must be installed after Windows to have multi boot.

I do not sell Linux, thus I do not care what OS people run. But I feel sorry for Windows users. IMHO Windows is an insult to any computer enthusiast.

I would recommend you utilize the ping command to help sort out the problem.

If you are having a problem with dns servers you will be able to ping the ip address of the router, and the numeric IP of google's dns server.
Code: Select all
$ ping www.google..com
will not work while
Code: Select all
$ping 8.8.8.8
and the router
Code: Select all
$ping 192.168.1.1
( your router address may be different).

Most browsing uses Domain names rather than numeric IP addresses and if name resolution fails, you will not be able to browse normally.

I had a similar problem with a router, using LEDE firmware, that provided both IPv4 and IPv6. My dropped connections disappeared after I disabled IPv6 in LEDE.

The other helpful command is traceroute.
