Windows 7: problems staying on the internet

problems staying on the internet

Just like alot of people, i also have the problem with staying connected to the internet. I troubleshoot, and it says "the default gateway is unavailable". At first it was only happening when my wife would be on her laptop and I would be on mine watching netflix. Talking to the isp (time warner) and even the router company (Belkin n300 router) didnt help. Belkin had us change the channel on the router and do a few other things but its still disconnecting randomly. Ive had this netbook for over a year now and any other time I havent had problems staying connected to the internet. Just last month before getting the internet I upgraded from 7 starter to ultimate. Thats the only change that has happened to my netbook that I can see. It disconnects when its wireless and wired. Ive uninstalled and reinstalled and updated the driver so its not that.
here is what the ipconfig says while im connected

Hi agadida, welcome to seven forums. From your system spec, you just meet the requirement spec for windows 7. What programs are running when you have this problem crop up? I am thinking that maybe, you are running short of available RAM and a task maybe starting that causes a glitch?. You could try putting in an SD card and using it as "readyboost", if the problem goes away, you can then decide if you want to replace the SD card with a RAM stick.

Sometimes its just chrome internet explorer, and i have Microsoft Security Essentials running. Anything else is whatever is normally running in the background automatically. I'll try that and report back with my results. Thank you for getting back with me with a suggestion.

Well, I put a 4 gb memory stick in to try ready boost. After a while I encountered the same problem. I wouldnt have thought it would be a ram issue because ive been able to connect to the internet before with 4 different web pages up, downloading music, and watching something on hulu. Not sure if it shows a difference but I just got disconnected and I did a ipconfig incase it would be helpful in solving this. To make it even more of a mystery, I have a dual boot with linux mint, and when im on that, i never get kicked off which leads me to believe its something with windows 7 or windows 7 ultimate.
