Cannot hold a wireless internet connection (default gateway not available)

Q: Cannot hold a wireless internet connection (default gateway not available)

Hi I have a win 7 netbook that I recently got and for some reason it suddenly cannot keep a connection to the internet. It used to keep a connection before but now I keep getting the error the default gateway is not available about every ten minutes while connected which of course is very frustrating.

I've tried updating all associated drivers but apparently that hasn't changed anything. I've tried restarting the computer and tried different connections. I know its nothing to do with the internet connection I'm trying to connect to as other devices are able to keep a connection with no issue. Any suggestions for things I can try or any questions?

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

A: Cannot hold a wireless internet connection (default gateway not available)

and welcome to the Forum

Lets take a peek at your network environment:

First:

Power Cycle everything . . Turn off the Modem, router and all pc's . . turn on the Modem and wait a few minutes for the lights to stabilize . . then turn on the router, then one pc at a time. See if you connect to the internet.

Then:

Remove all the stored wireless network profiles and search for the network again.

How to Remove Stored Wireless Network Profiles for XP, Vista, and Windows 7

Then: check your browser's settings, remove any proxy settings if found here's how.

Then:

with the pc connected to the router, Click on Start . . Run . . type CMD

At the > prompt type type the following command: IPCONFIG /ALL


Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter. Come back here and Paste the results in a message.

If you are on a machine with no network connection, use a floppy, USB disk, or a CD-RW disk to transfer a text file with the information to allow pasting it here.

then please Download and run this Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector, click the Networks link on the upper left and paste a screen shot of that screen here. Note that this application requires NET Framework to run. If you get an error about a missing function, download and install NET Framework.


To post a screen shot of the active window, hold the Alt key and press the PrtScn key. Open the Windows PAINT application and Paste the screen shot. You can then use PAINT to trim to suit, and save it as a JPG format file. To upload it to the forum, open the full reply window and use the Manage Attachments button to upload it here.

Hello, I am having a somewhat bizarre, extremely frustrating issue. I can connect to the internet via wireless just fine, and everything will be hunky-dory for a while. After a while, however (this varies anywhere from a day to a week), there will be a small hiccup on the connection, and then something fails in the Acquiring Network Address stage. My computers will get an IP, but they will not get the default gateway or DNS server.

I say computers because this happens on both my PC and laptop. This issue does NOT, however, occur for anyone else in the household.

I have tried a plethora of fixes, from simple computer reboots to fiddling with all sorts of settings, and nothing works to reestablish the connection. My father has also tried fixing it, to no avail. I have to go and reset my router, which also interrupts TV service, because it is through AT&T U-Verse. Needless to say, this does not make other people in the household very happy, and I really shouldn't have to be resetting my router every couple of days like that.

My PC uses a Netgear WG111v3 adapter and is Windows XP. My laptop has on-board Wifi and is Windows XP Professional. I am not sure why I am the only person in the household that experiences this issue. Could certain programs like AIM be causing problems?

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

My internet connection keeps dropping, when I run the diagnostics it comes back showing the problem as the "default gateway is not available" and showing it being fixed, but then it will happen again a few minutes later. I have been Googling the issues in hopes of finding a solution but nothing I have tried from what I've found has worked. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L645 and I'm using a wireless connection to a Motorola SBG6580, this is the first time I've had this particular issue since purchasing the computer almost 2 years ago.

Hi all

I am connected to a windows domain LAN and a 3G network adapter at the same time.

Now by default, the Computer connects to the internet via the LAN. Now at times the internet via the LAN is VERY slow, so I would like to override it with the 3G connection, so that all internet traffic goes via my 3G network, which is an entirely different network

The key is here that I do not want to disconnect form the LAN.

Thank you!

A:Change the default gateway to the internet to 3G connection

Hi DextrousDave!

Before I can advise a possible solution to your problem I need a couple bits of information first!

When you say you are connected to a Domain is that through a Windows Active Directory domain or are you connected to a workgroup? This is important to know as it can affect what DNS servers will need to be set up in order to complete this.

Secondly is the 3G connection able to connect to the network on its own through an ethernet cable with its own IP address or is it an adapter which must be connected to a machine via USB or another interface?

Many thanks for your co-operation,
Josh!

Hi.
I have Windows 7 on an ASUS computer.
I recently got a new router, and from then on I had this problem. I'm not sure if it's the router's fault or it was a coincidence that I started having this problem art that time.

I have full Internet Connectivity but No Internet Access/ Limited Access for Wireless Network Connection. I am on the internet right now with a cable so the Local Area Connection works fine.

I troubleshoot and get "DHCP is not Enabled" or "Default Gateway is not Available," or sometimes both. Other times it says it can't detect a problem but there's obviously one! But mostly the problem is the Default Gateway not being available and me not knowing how to fix it.

I go to CMD and run ipconfig/all, and DHCP is always enabled for Wireless so I'm not sure what the problem is for that.
DHCP and the Default Gateway both have the same number too.

I've tried changing my router's IP and Default Gateway numbers and inputting them in Adapter Properties ->Internet Protocol Version 4 TCP/IPv4 Properties but it does not work.

There was one time it did however! On that day, I had left the router unplugged the whole night the day before. I entered the IPv4 and two tries later, it worked! For about four days, the wireless connection was fine. Then it suddenly returned to Limited Access.

I've tried the same thing many times again but have not had the same luck.

Then I tried this into the Administr... Read more

Hey,

Before continuing, this is a thread that I currently have going, if you want extra details on what's been going on. I'll try to explain it quickly here:

My laptop won't connect to wireless Internet. Doesn't matter where I am, so it's not a router problem.
I've tried many things (can be seen on the other thread), and still can't get wireless Internet connection.

Before I go any further, I'm not great with computers, so any instructions, please, eaassyyy!

Now the weird thing is, when I'm in Safe Mode with networking, Internet seems to be working fine!
As you can see in the title, my Ping test is showing something is wrong.

I have no idea what to do here. I've been going through forums, tried the following:

- Changing wireless channel
- TCP/IP stack repair options
- Calling Dell (what a joke that was...)
- ran an ipconfig /all (see on the other thread through my forum link)
- removed Mcafee (using Windows Essentials), and when I did that, Internet worked for 5-10mins then crashed again.
- checked the Mac filtering settings on my router settings

Also, my computer crashed the other day (got a blue screen, shut itself down). I posted the details in the thread.

Finally, my great friend the moderator Etaf asked me to post this to see if I have a problem that this forum could help me with ... I read the 1st post, here is the mentioned information (I couldn't do #3 because I run on 64-bit):

anyone know about this product? 3Com HomeConnect Home Wireless Gateway.

It's been working ever since I got it (it used to be used at my old workplace, and my friend gave it to me 6 months ago).

it has NAT, etc.

setup:
Router with NAT, DHCP, and Firewall turned ON.
Wireless hookups: win98SE machine
Wired hookups: this WinXPH machine with regular RJ45 cable
Crossover cable from cable modem to WAN port
Cable provider: Cox Communications

about 5 hours ago, it was working..i was just working on my site.

i turn off my computer, go take a nap ... then come back, and all of a sudden, internet doesnt work. my cable modem lights are on like normal. but my router says internet is not connected ... i can still browse my home network though ....

but i release all IPs. turn off computer, router, and cable modem. for test, since my cable lights are working fine, i plug my cable modem directly to my computer, turn on computer.

it finds the IP address fine, and my internet WORKS!!!!!!

i turn everything back off, plug cable to router like it was before, turn computer back on, and it DOESNT work!!

so the problem has to be with my router. but i do everything, redo all settings, perform system checks, restore factory settings, etc etc .... still doesnt work!!

i called the cable company, and they say to go check with the router manufacturer company. he tried helping me diagnos things a little bit even though i know he wasnt supposed to since they dont support anything with routers... Read more

When I log into a VPN through windows, I am no longer able to access the internet. I have tried the solutions posted in this community regarding unchecking the "use default gateway" option. Doing this allows me to have internet
access after I log into the VPN but I am no longer able to access the network shared files. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate. Can someone help me?

A:No internet after VPN connection. Unchecking the "use default gateway" solution does not completely fix my poblem

Hi ,


To access internet and VPN, you can configure the VPN connection to use the default gateway on the remote network. This setting overrides the default gateway settings that you specify in your Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) settings.


To resolve the issue, you need to make the following configurations.


Step 1: You need to contact your administrator of the VPN Server to configure the Server that is running routing and remote access to use a static IP address pool.

Step 2: Disable Use default gateway on remote network setting in the VPN connection item on the client computer.


1.go to Control Panel (small icons)>network and sharing center>Change adapter settings which is in the left panel.
2.Right-click the VPN connection that you want to change, and then click
Properties.
3.Click the
Networking tab, click Internet Protocol (TCP/IP) in the Components checked are used by this connection list, and then click
Properties.
4.Click
Advanced, and then click to clear the Use default gateway on remote network check box.
5.Click OK, click OK, and then click OK.


Step 3: Connect to the Server That Is Running Routing and Remote Access

Step 4: Add a static route on the client use route print command.

Hello, I've been lurking for some time now but just made an account to get some help with an issue I've been having.

Some basic info before I start typing
I'm using a wired connection through At&t Uverse, no idea what the router model is, run though ethernet cable through and through. No Anti-Virus software, although I did use Malwarebytes and AlYac in sync for a while, before uninstalling them part-way though the problem.

That's my ipconfig /all settings, the skype icon with the resetting symbol is how I know my internet has stopped working at the time

Soon afterwards, I'll right click my Local Area Connections under Network Connection in my control panel and click Diagnose, and this is what ends up happening. And thus my connection is fixed for a period of time.

The time it works seems to be fairly random, from instant disconnects to up to 2 hours of working time, but I've noticed that it seems to happen most often when I'm gaming online, playing Path of Exile or League of Legends. Most of the time, I'll also be skyping with someone on video chat, so that could have an impact on the situation.

This has been happening intermittently before as well, the rig itself is a 2 year old custom rig, AMD FX 8350 cpu, AMD Radeon 7870, and MSI 970A-G46 Motherboard. The earliest occurrence was about a year ago, the same issue sprung up for a week and never came back. This time around it's been doing so for about 2 weeks and nothing I've done seems to have fixed the issue.

A couple days ago while my laptop would say I was connected to my network and had Internet access I couldn't even ping Google, even though I had been using Internet for the past hour or so. My roommate and my phone have no problem connecting to the Internet, it only seems to be my laptop. It's been on and off but it's getting worse now, I can only access the Internet through a wired connection while my roommate, his phone, and my phone have no difficulties. It says I'm connected with Internet access, but I can't access anything apart from something that's intra-network.
Any suggestions? I feel like it's my wireless adapter (built in) giving me problems, I've tried a system restore to before the problem started, it didn't work. I also uninstalled the adapter from device manager and restarted my laptop so it could install again. It did install again, but there hasn't been a change. I've also tried changing my IP address on the router.
My laptop is an Acer 5741G, the network adapter is a Broadcom 802.11n Network Adapter. The router is a linksys WRT54G v2.0.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Ok, I'm trying to get a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit boot repair disk. I have all the reinstall disks to do a back to factory settings that was purchased from Gateway(Acer) but I do not have a boot repair disk to fix the "UNMOUNTABLE_BOOT_VOLUME"  on the BSOD.  I tried to contact Microsoft and provided the Product key on the laptop, but was informed that I would have to contact the manufacturer because it was a preloaded Windows 7. I think it is wrong of them not to help since it is their OS that is causing the problem. But none the less I tried contacting Gateway but after holding for an eternity and never actually getting a human only to be disconnected it is getting very frustrating!
 
  After finally figuring out how to reach the BSOD (never thought I would be glad about getting the BSOD)ha) to see the information it supplied. Then finally finding out for sure I have the 64 bit, all I need now is the Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit, with out the Service Pack 1 attached to it. 
 
  Unless I have been misinformed on another site and I CAN use the 7 Home Premium SP1 to boot from. Will I mess up my chance of booting the laptop back to life and out of the endless loop if I use the SP1? I don't want to make matters worse since I do not think it was updated with the service pack before it got stuck looping on the Windows Error Recovery Screen. I still can not get to any files in any of the usual ways...as in F8 , Alt/F10 or any of the other way... Read more

It has been acting up big time in the last couple days. The speed (Mbps) fluncuates up and down, and constantly disconnects me. I have tried resetting the modem, but it will still do it after some time. I have the newest filmware. Why did it just start acting up now?

It has got to be the placement of the router. I have it in its own room on the same floor as my laptop, but its on a desk about 3 ft high. Perhaps on the ceiling?

I'm running Windows 7- 64bit, comcast internet, netgear router. Ethernet connection.
So recently my pc started getting super slow, and my a/v was showing all these threats were being blocked. I went in to defense mode and downloaded many a antivirus/malware removal program trying to rid my pc of the plague. Along the way I installed a windows driver update for my display and since then my Internet has stopped working. I've tried the usual router/modem reset, disable/uninstall network adapter all to no avail. I also tried my pdanet tether from my phone and even though it says it connects the little exclamation point still mocks me on the connection status. I plugged my laptop into the same ethernet cable and it works fine so I'm crossing that off the list. No device conflicts.
I've tried system restore but no luck. No luck in safe mode with networking. I'm guessing it has to do with the default gateway being blank but I'm really at a loss.

If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it, I'm just about ready to format but I'd really rather not. Thanks for any help!

Also to clarify, I don't have all those programs on my pc anymore. I deleted all the antivirus/malware programs to make sure they weren't causing problems.

I have done a Google search on this. Problem is, nothing I have tried so far has worked permanently. I am not even sure if the problem is my computer or my network. So here it is:

I have an Acer Aspire laptop with Windows 8.1. My main modem is located downstairs in my house, with a laptop connected to it (it works fine, never any issues). Before, I had a router wired upstairs to connect my laptop to. Here's the problem - it doesn't matter if I am using a wireless or a wired connection, I get a limited connection. I will have Windows troubleshoot the problem, and it always says that the problem was that the Default Gateway is not Available, and it will say that it is fixed. However, this randomly happens over and over anywhere from 2 minutes to 20 minutes after I just "fixed" it. I have just recently tried running a wire across my house to plug directly into the modem. This worked for a while, but the same thing started happening. Keep in mind, there is also a laptop wired directly to the modem downstairs in my house. I believe (but I haven't checked this in a while) that if I connect to the WiFi from my modem downstairs, it works fine. Another twist - I'm pretty sure I had this same issue occur on the old laptop that I had. So I am just flat-out confused.

I have heard that this is a Windows 8.1 issue, and I have heard that this could be an ISP issue (I have Comcast, if it matters). I just have no idea what the problem is or how to fix it. I have been trying so man... Read more

Hello everyone, I'm hoping that you can help me. I've lurked this forum for a long time.
This is a wired connection to the router/modem and I have also tried it on a different router.
I'll give a short version, then the lengthy background and what I have tried.

Short version: Any download of any size seems to trigger the connection to be dropped until I launch the trouble shooter which then resets the local area connection and gives the message in the subject plus "Fixed".

I noticed this happening with videos (any - CNN, Vimeo, YouTube, MSNBC, whatever), and then decided to test it by launching a game (Guild wars 2) because I KNEW it needed a patch. Sure enough, as soon as the download started - connection lost. Downloaded an extensive PDF - connection lost.

If I maintain just a browsing connection for text, I don't SEEM to have a problem. I just know what absolutely triggers it.

Background - This is a custom built rig that has always been rock solid. It has been upgraded through the years. Two weeks ago, I started getting BSODs which happened at different times: 5 minutes on, an hour, a day... and the reasons were varied: PFN_List Corrupt, memory management, others. SFC Check and Disk Check both found all sorts of errors. In the meantime, I tested with memtest86+ and discovered my RAM was bad.

Welcome to Seven Forums,

Have you also updated the latest network adapter's driver? I don't know if I have missed this out in your post.

Have you changed the network cable? What category are you using? Cat5, Cat5e or Cat6? It is labeled on the cable itself.

Also, what type of network card or adapter are you using? make and model? Is this integrated or it's a PCI or PCIe card?

Hey all,

I have a wireless usb belkin adapter and am trying to connect it to a netgear router.

1) I get an address via DHCP
2) I can ping the router

but:

1) Cannot access the web interface of the router or any other site, cannot ping google etc
2) No default gateway is given to my card.
What I have tried so far:

1) Its not a router issue as this seems to occur on other wireless networks. And the machine I am using at the moment is wirelessly connected to the router.
2) I have tried to manually enter an address (gave a exception to the router for the IP) and also gave it the DNS and gateway address - no luck.
3) Turned of all firewall and AV.
4) Everything is up to date.
5) This wireless card was working fine on thursday on a different network, a belkin - belkin network, but one of the networks i have tried since then is a Belkin based network.
Im lost on this one! Must be missing something but im not sure what.

Start by deciding how you would like to connect the computer to a network--by dial up or ethernet or wireless or by USB to a USB broadband modem.

Then you have to find a public hotspot or contract for service from an Internet Service Provider.

Here's the story.. My roommate's computer, both of our phones, my 3DS, etc., can all connect to the Linksys Router, but my laptop has issues galore. It will connect, but I'll randomly lose connection. Sometimes it'll reconnect right away, but a lot of the times it will connect with limited availability. Its almost as though it gets stuck on "Identifying..". When I run diagnosis it mentions default gateway issues a lot, and occasionally IP Configuration.

Sometimes all the NETSH reset stuff (winsock, ipv4, etc.) will get it back up and running, but not always.

Here's the weird part: This router (our apartment) is literally the ONLY connection I've had problems with. If I go anywhere else I can easily connect.

then it's a problem with your Router/ISP. Call them and tell them that your connection is flaky. It might be caused by an exposed wire or outdated router.

Hi everyone-
I am having a very annoying problem while on my laptop with my internet connection. I will be connected online via wifi and the internet stops working. I trouble shoot the problem via windows and it says the default gateway is not available and it fixes the problem and voila internet working again. Every once in a while it also will talk about the connection point not working and it resets during trouble shooting and its fixed again. Its getting to be very annoying because when I first purchased the laptop (less than a year ago) it wasn't a problem, but now it happens every 10 minutes or less (ever since I moved)! I have tried re-installing the drivers, making sure my computer had been updated and turning off my Mcafee firewall- none of the options made it work correctly. My computer's internet doesn't work, but the other laptops that use wifi work just fine still, so I know its just my computer. I know there has been a few posts about this problem, but I still haven't been able to find a solution for my computers problem yet. I was hoping for more technologically advance help than I can figure out since I've reached my last idea option. Any help or ideas would be helpful and greatly appreciated- thanks in advance!!

Every so often, seems to be random timing, my LAN connection will drop and when using the troubleshooter it says no default gateway was found and it fixes it. Then i can be ok again for a little while. As mentioned above this only started when i reinstalled windows 7. My old installed worked fine.
I have tried reinstalling/updating the drivers, i have also tried letting windows choose the drivers, both have the same result.

A:No Default Gateway - Ethernet connection keeps dropping

My first reply did not post properly, so this is the shorter version because I am lazy and I do not want to retype

i had the same thing happen to me a month ago after changing routers.

Hard Reboot (press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device, then unplug everything and rework your ethernet jacks too after your reset your devices)
*Modem (remove battery if there is one,press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device )
*Router (press and hold reset buttons for 90 seconds , differs per device)
also try this if you dont want to call your ISP for a new IP
*then unplug everything and rework your ethernet jacks too after your reset your devices

Another method would be winsock reset and the following below
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

if that doesn't work, call your ISP and they will fix the problem

Sorry for the quick reply with lack of depth. gotta go to work.

So I have had this problem for several days and it is starting to frustrate me. I lose connection to internet randomly. It can be as frequent as every few minutes, or it can happen once in a day. I fix it by clicking "troubleshoot problems". It resets something, and fixes it for some time with a message: The default gateway is not available.
Any suggestions? Here is a screenshot of my ipconfig/all. Btw I don't use a router.

A:Randomly losing connection/ default gateway not available

Since according to your image file attachment it appears that your PC is using a publicly addressable IP Address, we can only assume that you are plugged directly into the device that was provided by your ISP. If that is not the case please advise in future posts. Otherwise perhaps this issue would better be addressed with you provider. Perhaps a call to them might help in determining if they have any known issues with Windows 7 OS, or the presence of an IPv6 device on their network, or issues with Gigabit Network Cards and their provided device, etc. The DHCP lease times are relatively short (2 hours) this may be exacerbating the problem by I wouldn't think so provided everything else is working optimally. Additionally I would seriously consider disabling NetBIOS over TCP/IP on such a network just as a precaution.

Hi all,

I'm having a problem which has got even my ISP stumped!

Basically, I'm using a broadband modem, which appears to be connecting fine, with all the required lights being on. My ISP says that, from their end, everything is perfect. Even my laptop shows Local Area Network as connected.

However, for some reason, I am not able to access the internet. I was able to use it till last evening, but suddenly the internet stopped working. On Google Chrome, it says that there is no DNS or something.

Subsequently, when I tried to access my modem settings, it shows as 'webpage not available'. I then noticed that there is no default gateway! I was able to access it the day before, but now I can't.

A tech guy from my ISP had set the IP address and DNS manually (just mentioning this, in case it may help).

Can anyone please help in this regard? Any help would be greatly appreciated. If additional information is required, I can provide it.

Thanks a ton in advance!

Hello everyone!

Not so long ago, my girlfriend had a power outage and after that, her net never returned.
I've been looking to find the cause of the problem, thinking it was only Comcast network that had died for a little moment.
The internet was lost yesterday around midnight. It gives no Wifi Signal, nor ethernet, so I am guessing it is not only a computer problem.

So I checked around the internet to find what could be the problem. Since I cannot be there physically to check it out myself, I had to monitor her. Suposely unplugging, waiting 30 seconds, and replugging the power into the modem did not do anything. The lights are on, and seem fine.
Plugging the modem straight into the computer also dosen,t work.

On the computer itself, there is no default gateway, and when she tries to type ipconfig /reset, it gives an error message: "An error occurred while renewing interface Local Area Connection : An operation was attempted on something that is not a socket."
So I was thinking maybe it could of been a Winsock error?

I'm rather confused of what to do right now to solve the problem.
Thank you very much for your consideration and future help!
 

A:No default gateway nor internet

Is the following summary of my interpretation correct?

She has Comcast internet service, a modem and router or a modem/router combo, and no more than one device (a computer) with ethernet or Wi-Fi capability.

When connecting an ethernet cable between modem (or modem/router?) and computer does the ethernet LED light on the modem? On the computer?

In Device Manager under Network Adapters does the ethernet appear as "OK"? Same question for the wireless.

It would probably speed trouble shooting considerably if another device could be used to check the router's ethernet and/or Wi-Fi or if the computer could be tested on another network.

I then hard reset my router and still wouldnt work. Im out of ideas now. I dont have a dvd drive anymore so dont know if I can reinstall windows (dont have time now have a test tommorow!) so any help would be greatly appreciated!!!

A:internet keeps getting lost. Default gateway is not available

Try power cycling your equipment first. Unplug both the router and modem for about a minute or so; then reconnect the modem first and let that boot; then do the router and let that boot. Doing this should hopefully refresh all your connections. If that does not do anything; check for firmware updates for your router and possibly the modem as well. Try these things and report back if it doesnt do anything.

I own a 2 year old Toshiba Netbook and am having problems with connecting to my university's internet. When connected to the wireless I am constantly disconnected. When I run the troubleshooter it says that the default gate was is not available. It resets my wireless adapter and I can connect for 5-10 minutes before I have to repeat the process. Needless to say this is very frustrating. When I asked my university's tech support they suggested a full system restore. I would rather not have to deal with that. please help

A:Default Gateway Not Available -- Intermittent Internet

I'm wondering why your not using a private address range and why your router is subnetting a class b address. If this is a personal router for only yourself that is not needed. If its the universitys router for everyone to connect to then that's a differnt story. I will check the subnerting tomorrow.

Post the ipconfig /all for when you have connection and when you don't. Specify which is which.

Also I noticed your running a ipv6 to ipv4 tunnel.

update

I need more information. The subnetting looks fine, but i need to know if you're running off a campus router or your own personal router. If this is a campus router and you're getting DHCP from them then there's not much i can do for you other then trying to disable your IPV6 to IPV4 tunnel. Also do you know why you're running on a public IP address?

Hello

I have a Toshiba (Windows 7) laptop with a Realtek RTL8191SE Wireless LAN 802.11n PCI-E network card.

Lately I have returned home after travelling for a few months only to find that whenever I'm in my bedroom, my Internet will disconnect for no reason and whenever I troubleshoot problems it fixes itself and says the error was "Default Gateway was not found" Only to happen again 30 seconds later!

Sometimes it is fine for almost an hour and sometimes it disconnects 10 times in 5 minutes!

This hasn't happened anywhere else (and I travelled all around the US/Canada using various WI-FI connections) and it only happens in my bedroom! If I walk into the next room it works perfectly without disconnecting at all.

Does anyone know what the issue could be?

- I'm pretty sure my network card is updated
