Windows 7: Internet Connection Dropping- Default Gateway not Available

Internet Connection Dropping- Default Gateway not Available

My internet connection keeps dropping, when I run the diagnostics it comes back showing the problem as the "default gateway is not available" and showing it being fixed, but then it will happen again a few minutes later. I have been Googling the issues in hopes of finding a solution but nothing I have tried from what I've found has worked. My laptop is a Toshiba Satellite L645 and I'm using a wireless connection to a Motorola SBG6580, this is the first time I've had this particular issue since purchasing the computer almost 2 years ago.

Sounds like a router/modem issue to me.
Have you power cycled it lately?
Do you have a modem plugged into that motorola or is it a combo unit?
