Just put together a new desktop build and this seems to be my one gremlin. I cannot get a consistent wireless internet connection to save my life. I started off with a DLink DWA-130 adapter. I tried updated drivers for it before going out and purchasing a Netgear N600 adapter. Have the same issue with it as well, randomly while online or streaming something, my connection drops and Windows 7 says that while I have a connection to the router, the router doesn't actually have a connection to the internet. I know this is not true, as I can have my laptop working just fine as it's sitting beside my desktop which can't connect. I have tried updating the drivers, changing the channel of the router from 1 to 6, changing the power profile of the adapter so that Windows can't turn it off, doing a hard reset of the router and the adapter, as well as sacrificing a small goat to the Netgear gods. Nothing has worked so far. Any ideas?
