Windows 7: Have limited wifi every few minutes and now can not open google at all

Win 7 64
Have limited wifi every few minutes and now can not open google at all

It is my windows 7 64bit desktop, 5-6 years old, other laptop,iPad,iPhone has no problem connect to wifi at all.
I am not sure what is wrong about my wireless adapter, at first I got yellow triangle every few minutes, and I used trouble shooting it was fine for a while. And I did try update adapter driver , or remove it, and reload or turn off TCP/IP options, I have 4, 6 sometimes 4 might work, most time 6 is not connecting to network.
I restore my system, open it in safe mode, still have the same issue.
Today when I open it, the yellow mark actually stay forever, if it is fine, then there is no sending/ receiving data if I open status window.
I opened device manager, it said the adapter is working properly, but now I trouble shooting, it can not fix the problem. Sometimes it said adapter problem solved, but there is no sending receiving data, sometimes they said router has no data, but my other computers are totally fine.

I am not sure how to read the ipconfig, I attached one photo about it. I typed ipconfig /all

I doubt it might be the wireless adapter broken? This issue suddenly show up month ago and getting worse and worse.

Thanks a lot

Windows 7 ultimate 64-bit

honestly; even if your other devices such as your ipad, etc. are able to connect; I would still try power cycling your equipment to see if that does anything for ya. Unplug the power cords for both the modem and router(if you have separate devices); wait about a minute or so; then plug the modem back in first and let that fully boot; then plug the router back in and let that fully boot and see if that does anything to resolve the issue. If that does nothing; then i would say it could be the actual hardware(the network adapter inside your system) that is possibly bad. If you can I might try and get hold of another network card and install that and see if it makes a difference. Try both of these if needed and see what happens.
