My laptop has been unable to download anything via my wireless network. Whenever I attempt to download a steam game for example, it will start downloading and after 5-10 seconds the internet will drop out.
The wireless connection is still maintained, but the internet is not available. It is fixed by cycling the router, however this is very painful as to download 100 mb of data, it may take 20-50 cycles.
Other computers in my household can download from steam fine.
Any ideas on how to fix this?
I run a Windows 7 laptop and the router is a Netgear WGT624. It is about 6-7 years old, but
