RW arc goes hollow off and on -- Wifi Issue?

The RW icon, the arch, keeps going hollow then full every few seconds, which I take to mean that the wi-fi is going in an out and won’t keep a sustained connection on my home network. The wi-fi connection is working fine on my laptop, which leads me to believe that it is not a router issue. The phone (Google Pixel) says the signal is “excellent”. I have turned the phone off and on. I have reset the wi-fi settings. I don’t know whom to turn to for help.

Sometimes simply rebooting the router will clear an issue even if other devices are working correctly.
