So today, I started noticing that the internet stops working randomly, on WIFI.
I would do stuff, and then it just stops working, normal browsing stuff.
Yet, wifi is connected, and all other devices in the house are fine. TV is playing programs from internet, iPhones are fine as well.

Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this?

I am running a M1 Macbook Pro with latest available stable Mac OS

It could be your router even though it’s only the one device that is being affected. Did you try rebooting It?

Restarted my mac, a couple of times, in an hour issue returned.
Now, funny thing is, the issue has gone away, and I haven't lost any internet connection anymore, hopefully, it will stay this way.

I still think it’s the router. I’ve had such issues in the past, and rebooting the router solves it.

Are you downloading large files?

I had an issue of relatively slow speeds and dropping the internet while downloading.

It was fixed by changing the MTU
