Win 7 keeps cycling between online and no access

In spite of my other post, Comcast won't send me another router just yet, so I need some more help on solving a newer problem. I let the computer and the router rest for a few days, and I turned on my Alienware and it said I was connected! So I hopped onto Chrome and all of a sudden, no internet, and the "!" symbol appears. But then, when I let it sit, it'll say I have internet, then after 5 more minutes, the "!" will reappear.
It keeps going into this never-ending cycle, and I have no clue what is causing it.

I have tried resetting my IPV4/6 adapters, installing a USB wifi card, and shutting off firewall but nothing seems to work.
Any ideas to how this can be fixed, or has anyone seen this before?

Thank you so much!

Try a different channel output on your router, it seems like you're getting a lot interferences (microwave, cordless and cellular phones, other wi-fi connections, etc)

i generally use the channel 11 as it's not very popular and is generally clear (remember 6 is the default one so most likely to be full of interferences)
