Windows 7: default gateway not available-so annoying!

default gateway not available-so annoying!

I have to repair my wireless connection almost every 2 minutes because it drops and gives me and same issue "default gateway not available". This is extremely frustrating because I just got this brand new Dell laptop, and it's been doing this since day ONE. I assume it's a windows 7 issue.

Details :

The default gateway is not available
The default gateway is a device that connects a local network or computer to the Internet. A broadband modem or router is usually the default gateway.

I would suspect you are running homegroup and IPv6. both have been shown in some setups to cause random drops, freezes, slow downloads, etc.

You cn verify it by creating a new network connection based on the workgroup model which uses IPv4. Once it is up and running you can disable IPv6 and homegroup

I have no idea how to do that.
Sorry, I'm not savvy with any of the new Windows systems AT ALL. D:
