I can connect to wifi but sometimes it does not connect to internet. Why?

Hi I can connect to wifi but sometimes it does not connect to internet. It does show my connection with wifi. I checked the connection from "rfkill list all" ... it is showing no block. Every time i reset the router after such conditions i'll get internet access back. What may be the exact condition or reason for this? Thanks

Can you be more specific? What distro are you running? When is this issue occurring? Is it when you switch networks or come out of hibernation or suspend or after the computer has been idle for a long time?

I have to ask some questions to try to narrow the issue down? What distro are you running? When specifically do you have this issue? Is it when your computer wakes up from suspension or hybernation or when you try to switch networks or from wired to wireless? Please be specific. Also please keep in mind that being connected to your wireless network and being connected to the internet are two completely unrelated things so that whether or not your router, or even your computer has internet access you very likely will have a network connection to your router.
