Internet is driving me crazy! I have to restart my pc every 15 minutes to get it to work again

I'm currently using Windows 8 Pro and I'm connecting to my router wirelessly. I know it's not the router because I am using this PC at work, and no one else has this issue. Every 15-30 minutes I can't access any websites, and I need to restart my PC in order to get it to work again. It's starting to get really annoying and I can't figure it out.

I'm not sure if this is the information you guys need but this is what shows up when I type ipconfig/all

Try wired connection and see if it makes any difference. to be honest though it's more likely to be either the isp playing up or even more likely the router is on it's way out

Ok i'll try that out. I don't think it's the router or isp becuase no other PC has this problem, and it even happens when I connect to our other router downstairs. We have two routers total, and it happens with both.
