Windows 7: Frequent internet access dropping - "Limited Internet Access"

Frequent internet access dropping - "Limited Internet Access"

First things first, these are my computer specs.

Operating system: Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit
System Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology
System model: GA-770TA-UD3
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Processor ~3.2GHz
Memory: 4096MB RAM
Display: ATI Radeon HD 5670
Netword Adaptors: D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop Adaptor (wireless)
& Realtek PCIe GBE Family Controller (on board - disabled)
Wireless Router

I never had this issue on Windows Vista, occasionally my internet will randomly dropout. Limited Internet Access". When it does I can do a few things to get it working again:
- Disable, then enable my wireless card and reconnect.
- Uninstall the card, then re-install and reconnect.
- Disconnect from the internet myself and reconnect.

Either way it gets super frustrating. There is 1 other computer plugged directly into the router that does not experience any issues. In addition, I have 1 laptop (windows 7) that works great and 1 laptop (Windows XP) which works great.

For any technical suggestions, please clarify how to perform what the recommendation is, I'm not too keen with networking issues.

Thank you

Hi Neufy,

Is this the problematic adapter - D-Link DWA-552 XtremeN Desktop? I assume the issue is wireles connection?
You might want to download the most recent driver for it, here's the link to the D-Link site.

Install and run http://www.xirrus.com/Products/Wi-Fi-Inspector.aspx
Double click the Xirrus Icon on your Desktop, Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached the file on your next post.
