I have a Dell XPS running Win7 x64 pro. My wireless card is a Intel WIFI Link 1000 BGN (This is at least what shows in my device manager).
The problem: I will browse online for a period of time (typically 30 - 60 minutes) and my browser will stop loading webpages. I have switched between IE, IE 64bit, Firefox, and Chrome and it is not browser dependent as far as I can tell. When I get to the point that I am no longer able to browse online, I will try PINGing google.com which completes everytime with 0% loss. The issue seems to persist for a length of time, and typically does resolve itself after an hour or so. Alternatively, if I restart my computer the problem is resolved immediately. I am using Windows Security Essentials and Windows firewall, so no 3rd party Firewall or AV. I have seen other threads similar to this, but never found a resolution to the issue. I have tried doing IPCONFIG /Release /Renew and that doesn't fix things. Does anyone have any ideas as to what my next troubleshooting step might be with this?
