Windows 7: Internet Dropping, but only for web browsers

Internet Dropping, but only for web browsers

Seems to be happening more frequently now, used to only happen every so often and was manageable.

Seems that every few minutes, web pages stop loading. I use Google Chrome, and I get the connecting... in the bottom left hand corner, and that can last for 30 seconds up to me having to close the browser, since it simply won't load. A page refresh does not fix this problem.

I have tried other browsers, (Firefox, IE, Opera, even Safari), all have the same problem


However all other internet apps, such as AIM, Outlook, continue to work normally.

Running Windows 7 Build 7264, never experienced this on any prior builds.

Thanks for any and all help!

Hi xderkax, click start and in the start search box, type cmd and press ctrl+shift+enter.
In the black command prompt window, type ipconfig /flushdns and press enter.
Did it make any difference?

nope, still having the same problems.

I do plan on installing the RTM tonight, which may fix this, I just want to know if its a hardware problem before I continue.
