Windows 7: Wifi Stops Working

Windows 7
Wifi Stops Working

Hi, I am on Windows 7 64 Bit. I have a TP Link TL-322G USB Adapter with proper Windows 7 64 bit drivers.

My problem is that the internet connection stops working. This could just be randomly or when I'm doing something i.e. browsing or downloading. If I am downloading, the download still carries out however Firefox / Internet Explorer stops working.
My laptops are fine when this happens so it's not related to my router. Sometimes it says 'No internet connection' even though it is connected to the router.

This happened when I reinstalled Windows. Before that I had no problems and I was running the same version of Windows.

Please help.

Windows XP - Now Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit).

From a command prompt try:

ipconfig /renew

ipconfig /release

ipconfig /flushdns

Then reboot the machine and the router.
