Wireless Internet Connection Randomly Lost.

Hey, so I just recently built this PC with built in WiFi and I have been experienceing some trouble. I will randomly lose internet connection while on my PC, sometimes while gaming and other times while just browsing the internet. I have updated all my drivers for the router and built in wireless. Any help would be appreciated.

1. Is this a wired or wireless connection issue? WIRELESS

2. Who is your Internet Service Provider (ISP)? COX COMMUNICATIONS

3. What type of Broadband connection are you using? CABLE

4. What is the exact Make and Model of your Modem, Router or Modem/Router Combo -
MODEM: MOTOROLA SB5101N ROUTER: APPLE AIRPORT EXTREME

5. What is the Name of the Anti-Virus, Security or Firewall Software installed from the problematic computer - AVG

Hi there,

Thanks for all the info that you've provided quite helpful. The ipconfig/all output and Xirrus snip looks good.

Are there any other heavy data users in your household? Perhaps heavy gamers or video streamers? How about any small electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, stereo speakers, etc.) near your computer that might be causing interference?

Can you please post your Speedtest?

Thanks for the reply, The most devices on the network at one time is 4 (2 computers and 2 phones). Seems weird that I did the same stuff 2 weeks ago on my old PC and never had this problem. So you think maybe there is a freq, that is interfering with my signal which causes it to lose connection? Here's my speedtest results:

Sorry for the delay of the respond. It might be some type of interference causing your disconnection, not so sure. But are there any small appliances/electronics near your PC that might be interfering?

You may definitely try using your USB Wi-Fi Adapter and see if that helps. Try disabling the integrated Wi-Fi adapter from Device Manager. How Do I Enable My Disabled Wireless Adapter? | eHow

By any chance are you using a wireless utility (program) manager for your Wi-Fi adapter other than the built-in Windows wireless (WLAN Autoconfig)?
