Windows 7: Faulty Adapter or Software issue? Connection goes to "Limited Access"

Faulty Adapter or Software issue? Connection goes to "Limited Access"

Hello everyone,
So every time I start my computer, within the hour I get "Limited Access" to my home wifi. It happens consistently, yet almost randomly, and nothing I can think of triggers it. Once it goes into limited access, the only fix I've found is rebooting my computer. Resetting my modem does nothing. Disabling my network adapter, Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC 7260, causes my network and sharing to hang and become unresponsive. I've tried running Windows troubleshooting, which will try to reset the adapter. However, all it does is disable the adapter and trying to enable it will cause network and sharing to hang and become unresponsive.

I'm pretty sure it's not an issue with my modem, because all my other devices have fine, uninterrupted connection.

Things I've tried:

1. Netsh winsock reset in command prompt.
2. Ipconfig /release and /renew commands
3. Uninstalling and reinstalling the network adapter driver
4. Disabling my anti-virus (I use Avast).
5. System restore (Although I didn't have a restore point for a time when I wasn't experiencing the problem)
6. Making sure the powersaving boxes are unchecked
7. Using MSI live update to make sure all drivers are up to date.

I've had this computer for almost 2 years, and I've only experienced this issue for the past few weeks. I can't think of anything that might have triggered it, so I'm stumped here.
