The only thing I can think of then is something on your computer could be blocking your connection. Have you tried connecting in safe mode? Disabling all unnecessary software and determine if any of the software is causing this.
Also while in safe mode do virus and malware scan. Also check to make sure your dns is set to where you want it cause my brothers laptop had some malware that was changing it's dns settings.

THANK YOU!! I have received this DNS Server Isn't Responding alert for some time now.Been through two different WiFi modems and constantly being dropped and losing signal. Moved WiFi further from my wireless TV, Logitech Revue and cable console. Problem fixed! Solid signal for several days now.
