Random yellow flag on network connectivity

Wow, it looks the computer are taking advantages over me...
this time is my mom's computer

it's an old IBM Thinkpad t42 running Windows 7

as always, everything was fine, but from a month ago im paying attention to a random problem with the network on that laptop, sometimes it gets internet acces, sometime not, i switch ports (i have a small router) with no results, i connect it directly to the modem and no result, i run the "problem solver" (sorry if i misstranslate, the system is in spanish so i guess that is the name in english) for networks.. and sometimes works, i tryed to sing in with live messenger with no succes and i run it's troubleshoter, and the test results list stops in "default gateway", i hit "repair" and sometimes works, now since yesterday nothing work,s the system has no access to internet, i have read that the problem could be the driver, im not sure about that since there has not been any change on drivers and it did work before....

please help!

Hello kharl & Welcome to SevenForums

Maybe your network provider is down or something.
Check the manual for your router, and see if the lights are lighting as they should. Otherwise update your driver for your network driver.

Enjoy your stay here at SevenForums,

if there is something wrong with the router, why the problem persist wven wen i try with another network and connecting directly to the modem?

i dont know much about networks, but i can not imagine that a configuration problem can pass form one OS to another in the same computer, i have linux puppy installed on that computer in case windows fail, i tried accessing to internet through puppy with no success, so i got to a point where i think the network card is bad o, but suddenly the the "fix a problem" of network wizzard did solve the problem, and now im online again (in windows)...

whats going on?

Could be a driver problem, windows might have updated the driver when you installed windows updates.

Try Installing another driver to see if that helps. Check your Ethernet cable too!!

Check the controller properties, as shown below, and ensure that the option Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power (Spanish: Permitir al equipo apagar este dispositivo para ahorrar energía) is unchecked, as shown below. Then reboot.

Ok!! So its not the PCs!!

If your using ethernet cable, change the cable, if your using wireless test with another USB Dongle.

If the problem still exists then its your router, More than likely your ISP fault!! Give them a call!!
