I see. Hmmm. What about just power cycling or resetting the router?

Do you have wireless phones or high energy electronics nearby that could interfere with your laptop? Cause that's weird that it drop intermittantly. Maybe use a program called inSSIDer and see what networks are around you that could also be interfering with yours.

I do have a phone but u don't think that's the issue. My computer is a desktop but the router is on the first floor and my computer is on the second floor so that's why I'm using wireless.

Ok then trying using inSSIDer and see how strong the signal is getting to your computer.

The modem is not far from my computer. Its on the floor below and the signal seems fine. I just did a troubleshooter again and got the message "Your computer appears to be correctly configured, but the device or resource (Microsoft Corporation: Software, Smartphones, Online, Games, Cloud Computing, IT Business Technology, Downloads) is not responding."

I attached a screenshot.

Try switching the channel on the router. It's possible something is interferring with the signal. The most commonly used channels are 1, 6, & 11. So any other channel between those could work.

I changed it to channel 3 (it was on 1) and after a few minutes it started working, but it might stop working again. Also, before i changed the channel I noticed my torrent program was downloading at full speed but no other program was working (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Windows Media Center, Google Music, Steam, etc.).

Maybe your torrent is causing your issues too. Did you try disabling the torrent for the time being.

Yes I did try stopping all the torrents and closing the program but it didn't fix the issue.
