Internet problems

Hello,

Recently i've had some problems with my internet, i'll try to describe it the best i can.

After a few hours of happy internetting my connection drops out my internet says it's connected but i cannot visit any site nor can i ping them. Skype is working though but i guess that's because it's peer to peer.

After an hour or so it's suddenly working again, it's really bizarre (internet works on other computers and devices)

Is there any way to solve this? perhaps my wireless card has met its time (It's like 5-6 years old)

Thanks in advance, Frank

It's not the wireless card(Skype is working). It may be some malware.

if Skype still works, your internet is not "out" - this is a network card issue (http)

the next time it happens, open a cmd prompt and type ipconfig /renew

see if it works after

Thanks for the reply! but

I highly doubt it's malware.. Since i have a good antivirus (Panda cloud pro) i just scanned my PC.
I personally think it might be my network card failing on me :S
