My brother's computer randomly loses connection to the network, it seems to happen for no reason, but possibly more often/sooner when demanding more from the network (downloads, playing a game, etc). Now the thing is he doesn't just lose internet connection, but connection to the network entirely. He cannot even access the router by typing the IP into the browser. If anybody can give me some help on this issue it would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
We have already tried virus scanners (Vipre, Comodo) changing the network cable, Ipconfig /[flushdns, release+renew], disabling media sharing, and various other things..
Computer is running on windows 7
Wired connection, not sure what its called but the ethernet cable goes into an adapter of sorts that connects to a regular wall socket, which I used to use for my computer so I don't think that's the problem unless it is a new development.
