Hi,

Recently I've been having a problem with the Internet.

I am connected to a wireless WEP network using a TrendNet wireless adapter running Win 7. The Internet will stop working for some unknown reason only on my PC that uses this wireless adapter, but just web browsing stops working. Skype and Torrent still works. On my MacBook the Internet will still work during these periods. What seems to be the problem and how do I fix it?

TIA

Most likely heavy bandwith internet usage from torrent or possible infection. WEP is also an old security encryption, interference is another or a faulty adapter.

Torrent isn't running when this occurs.

If it was WEP or interference my MacBook would have the same issue.

I scanned for viruses. It can't be an infection.

I highly doubt it's faulty adapter. I've only experienced this problem until recently.

What else could be causing this?

Well, you could try reinstalling the USB wifi adapter as one... and try using a different USB port this time.
