Default gateway is not available

Hello,
I'm haviing problems connecting to the internet. It only happens with 1of my laptops, all others have not problems. In the network and sharing ctr, it intermittently says Access type: internet then suddenly I get a no internet access. I've tried release renew DNS, reboot computer, release/renew IP. When it says I have internet access, I attempt to connect to no avail. Any help would be appreciated

  1. When it says that you you internet access what IP is assigned to your computer?
  2. I checked all network connections, IP 192.168.0.104. We have 3 computers working simultaniously and all connect but this one. All IP's are in sequence. Same default gateway, same subnet mask. That's what has me confused.

    I get intermittent ping response from my gateway (192.168.0.1) Pinged 3 times, twice 3 of 4 and once I got 2 of 4. Pinging 206.13.29.12, I got 2 of 4.
  6. I see this very problem quite often with Atheros based wireless adapters. If you haven't already, download and install the latest drivers for your adapter. If your adapter is Atheros based you might be further ahead to dump it and get one that's either Intel (first choice) or Broadcom (distant second) based.

    I checked to see if the drivers were up to date which they were. I am running a intel adapter. The problem is definitely the connection between the computer and router.
