Please try these recommendations:

Make sure that 'Obtain DNS server address automatically' is selected from your Wireless connection. Here's how.

Remove your network encryption from the router, test your connection after. If you can't connect, try a WEP security.

Disable the problematic Wireless Network Adapter's power saving mode from Device Manager, locate the Network Adapter=> Wi-Fi Adapter=. Properties=> Power Management Tab, in here you may disable any Power Save mode options by unchecking them off.

Test your connections after, and if it's still an issue please provide the following:
Click on Start => in run or search box type cmd, press enter. Open up a command prompt, run as an Admin then Copy and Paste these ipconfig /all >c:\ipconfig.txt . Please attach the .txt file to be found in your Local Disk 'C' on your next post.

From your wireless computer pls. install and run Xirrus Wi-Fi Inspector.
Click on the 'Show Networks' to display all wireless networks on the xirrus icon on your desktop of if you have one running in a corner. Tap the Printscreen key on your keyboard, open up Paint then choose Edit from the Menu and select Paste, then SAVE it. Upload and attached it here, click on Go Advanced and locate Manage Attachments Tab and attached the file.

An update will be nice.
