Windows 7: Intermittent ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error in multiple browsers

Intermittent ERR_CONNECTION_RESET error in multiple browsers

My wife just bought a new DELL Inspiron N4050 laptop with Win7 64 bit. Connecting via our home wifi we get intermittent errors -101 ERR_CONNECTION_RESET in Chrome and Firefox. It is not site specific and sometimes a site will work, then it wont.

We have 3 other computers on the same connection and have tested the same sites at the same time the error is occurring and the sites are fine on other computers, I have not seen this error in the 12 months we've had this network set up until we got the new laptop.

Can anyone offer any suggestions as to where I should be looking to correct this?

What OS is on the other computers?

Can yo give us an ipconfig /all please. To do this see below:

Click start>run.
Type 'cmd' and click Enter
In the black box type 'ipconfig /all'.
Do a print screen and upload it to here.

Also, make sure that you are not using a proxy server.
