Computer: HP Pavilion DM4 2070-US
Network Card: Intel Centrino wireless-N 1000 (Driver is from intel )
Windows 7 Home Premium 

Router: Asus RT-N66U (Firmware:

I have an issue with my network card. I connect to my router without any issues however randomly I will lose connectivity.

The order this normally happens

* Internet works fine. Connected to internet. Able to log into router. Wireless Icon shows bars
* Internet stops working, cannot log into router Wireless Icon shows bars
* Internet stops working, cannot log into router Wireless Icon shows bars with yellow triangle "limited connectivity"

At this point two things happen. It fixes itself within 1-3 minutes or I use the quick key to disable and enable the wireless adapter. Once that is down everything works fine until the next time the issue pops up. Sometimes this is 5-8 times a day other times it seems like once a week. 

While this happens other devices have no issues. Only this laptop.
I believe this has also happened when connected to different wireless network.
