Internet connection drops every few minutes

Symptoms:
- After few minutes (1, 5 sometimes 30) of well functioning internet, sites stop loading.
- Wireless indicator icon in the tray shows as it's STILL CONNECTED and everything's fine.
- Can't even load 192.168.1.1 in the browser.

Workaround:
- Reset adapter solves for a few minutes.
- Connect to a different network and go back to the original one solves for a few minutes.

Details:
- Other computers are connected to the same router and don't experience this problem.
- Haven't checked this computer with other routers.
- Network adapter drivers are updated to last.

System:
- HP dv6 3310ej (specifications)
- Windows 7 x64
- Broadcom 4313 802.11b/g/n
- AVG 2012 antivirus
- 8GB RAM (added my own 4GB)
- TpLink router WR841N

I would check the version number of your router and try to update the firmware. TP-Link Firmware Download

When you dont have access could you post your IPconfig /all use option 2.

Indeed the firmware version wasn't up to date, I have updated it and I will check to see if the problem persists in the following days. If I haven't posted anything in a few days it means that the problem is gone thx

Yep, it worked!
While updating the firmware I noticed that the problematic computer was configured both for DHCP static IP allocation and for MAC binding. That might have been the cause as well.

thanks for the help,
Michael
