A short while ago, I had my data backed up onto a new HDD, as the old one was showing signs of failing soon. When I got the computer back, I noticed a problem where I need to constantly hit "Diagnose" in the Wireless Network Connection Status to get my internet working again. When it gets into this stage, several websites continue to work, I don't lose my connection to them. Some websites I can still connect to without a problem. However, many websites, even google, keep giving an error that the host could not be found. It appears that it stops accepting new connections until I reset the wireless card. My Laptop (using wireless) and other PC (Connected directly) have had no issues at all with our wireless router. If there is any useful information that I could provide for this situation, please let me know. (ipconfig /all maybe?) The wireless device on this computer is an Atheros 802.11 a/b/g/n Dualband Wireless EDIT: (This forum does not preserve my formatting?)

Have you tried doing a DNS Flush?

In a command prompt (as administrator), type in "ipconfig /flushdns" without the quotes

Tried that, didn't seem to help, I have to diagnose to fix the problem. I just downloaded Subspace-Continuum, that might help me visualize what's going on. It pings like 20 different servers, so I'll see if it dies out completely or only some go down. It's a very odd behavior...

If it helps, everything I tracert gets a time out on the second hop. After the 2nd one, it's all ISP routing. When this issue crops up, it will not get past the 2nd hop, it wont pick it up at all.

You can try a tracert to 8.8.8.8 as well as google.com

your DNS settings may be set to your ISP's (and if they are anything like mine, they are extremely poor). Try using 8.8.8.8 and 8.8.4.4, Google's DNS servers
