Well it was fixed for a day. Got up this morning and it started happening again! No clue why. It was perfectly fine. Also the router signal strength has gone from good to fair. Any ideas. Again?

There are a couple more problems this can be but you will need to post a screen shot of your ipconfig/all so I can see what's going on here. Looks like the picture below.

Ok. Here is the screen shot. It turned up more, but that was all virtualbox adapters.

Ok first disable all the virtual adaptors you can find in device manager, they can cause endless connection problems. Only enable those if you need to use them. Also a fully expanded ipconfig would help here, I need to see the rest of it.

Instead of using IPv4 properties window for your DNS you should remove the entry there and go into your routers set up page and type in two DNS servers there instead.

darn back again eh?

I just had an idea you can turn of IPv6 in the adapter. May cause problems.

I think I have this handled thanks. Turning off IPv6 should not be an option.

The Argument against Disabling IPv6.

It is unfortunate that some organizations disable IPv6 on their computers running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008, where it is installed and enabled by default. Many disable IPv6-based on the assumption that they are not running any applications or services that use it. Others might disable it because of a misperception that having both IPv4 and IPv6 enabled effectively doubles their DNS and Web traffic. This is not true.
From Microsoft's perspective, IPv6 is a mandatory part of the Windows operating system and it is enabled and included in standard Windows service and application testing during the operating system development process. Because Windows was designed specifically with IPv6 present, Microsoft does not perform any testing to determine the effects of disabling IPv6. If IPv6 is disabled on Windows Vista, Windows Server 2008, or later versions, some components will not function. Moreover, applications that you might not think are using IPv6—such as Remote Assistance, HomeGroup, DirectAccess, and Windows Mail—could be.
Therefore, Microsoft recommends that you leave IPv6 enabled, even if you do not have an IPv6-enabled network, either native or tunneled. By leaving IPv6 enabled, you do not disable IPv6-only applications and services (for example, HomeGroup in Windows 7 and DirectAccess in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 are IPv6-only) and your hosts can take advantage of IPv6-enhanced connectivity.
