Another Wireless Problem..SOLVED

Hey guys, i'm new here, but i've been lurking around trying to search for a cure for my problem, but out of all of the wireless problems here, none of them that i found were like mine. Ok, well i am running Window 7 build 7260 32-bit on my gateway laptop, and everything is great except one little annoyance. My wireless connects fine, but after about 10 minutes it says that there is no internet access. Mind you, it is still connected to the router, it just says no internet access. When i disconnect and connect again it works for another few minutes, then the problem returns. If this has been discussed somewhere else, i would greatly appreciate a link, or if you know how this may be fixed, i would very much thank you. Thanks in advance!

A few things can cause that. First if IP-6 support is enabled in network cpanel it can, second if the wifi has wake on lan, etc.

Could you do us a favor and put your system specs in userCP so we know what you have? could you also tell us abt your network setup

I have a belkin router with WPA protection. It isn't the router because i have 3 other computers working on the router.

OK what wifi card?

go into device manager (type device manager in search) and see if the wifi card is displayed properly and is working, or is it displayed as an unknown device.

Another thing to check.

right click network icon, click on "open network and sharing center"

click on wireless next to connection.

In the next window, click on wireless properties.

Make sure the "connect to a more preferred network" checkbox is unchecked.
Otherwise you could be connecting to a stronger signal in your neighborhood.
