Wireless internet connection keeps cutting out

The internet connection keeps cutting out, roughly every 5 minutes. 
When i select to "diagnose" the problem it fixes the connection and tells me:

Problems found
    the default gateway is not available

Please help me solve this, it started about a week ago and is very frustrating

I'm running WIndows 7 64 bit

Hi Try disabling the firewall and check if it resolves the issue. Let me know the result.

Wireless internet connection keeps cutting out

Hi Hasan,

I just tried disabling the firewall but it's made no difference. It's weird, I've had the computer for a year with no problems but now I'm lucky if the internet stays connected for more than a minute(!).

I've done many web searches about this and have discovered that it seems to be a fairly common problem with Windows 7 64bit, but not one of the solutions I can see have made any difference....

...I would love some more help with this, it's a very frustrating problem as I can not download large files anymore and that's neccesary for my business.

-Liam

Hi..

 

Please try the following:

 

From the Start Menu, click All Programs, click Accessories, right click the Command Prompt and select 'Run as Administrator'.  Into the prompt type the following commands, hitting enter after each command.  Include spaces in the commands as shown.

 

ipconfig /flushdns

nbtstat -R

nbtstat -RR

netsh int ip reset c:\resetlog.txt

netsh winsock reset

 

Type exit and hit enter.  Restart the PC and see if you can now connect.

 

Let me know the results
