Weekly random loss of internet connectivity on pc only. Tablets and phones OK. Have re flushed IP adressses and verified IPv4 settings with only temporary results twice in last 3 weeks. Any help would be appreciated

Firewall could be blocking the DHCP requests or a network issue is preventing the DHCP server from connecting to the DHCP client.
If you are using third-party firewall please uninstall the firewall to find out issue resolves.
Also install latest network card driver.

It appears I have Windows firewall turned on and apparently have an ISP firewall from my provider. I have switched off Windows firewall completely. No change in status and can't get to internet to see ISP's firewall on my modem

Yes.    I have internet connectivity.    One question: What is the recommendation regarding firewalls?    My ISP's modem has a firewall and I have have a firewall with Windows 10 .   Should the Windows Firewall be enabled as well?  It is by default.

There are several different types of firewalls both hardware and software based. Your operating system may feature a software based firewall. The one inside your router is usually a hardware-based firewall. You should enable both of the firewalls. 

Comodo Personal Firewall is free good firewall.

You should turn it on in order to block some incoming connections. I am using Norton and it does coming with this kind of feature if you need some third party choices, but the native one is probably good enough for you.
