    My laptop signal is excellent and it says it has internet access most of the day. But when it gets to about 11 or 12 at night it will just stop working. The signal is still full and still says internet access but it won't connect until the next morning or so.

    2 other laptops in the house dont have this problem so I think I can rule out modem problems.
    Gaming consoles also are fine.

    I have tried deleting the wireless profile
    I have tested using ethernet instead and that works fine
    I have pinged google, the router and the other laptops and all come back with a reply with no packet loss

    Its annoying as hell, what's going on??? :mad:

    so that would imply you have a good connection to the router and network and with pinging google , internet access

    sounds like some sort of parential control
    any parental controls setup on the PC at all
    although I would expect to effect this adapter too

    What firewall / security suite or anti-virus do you currently have on the PC - or you have ever had on the PC in the past - any trial ware - like Norton, Mcafee , AVG , Webroot etc

    Thats why i'm so confused. If I can ping google then why are none of my browsers loading pages?

    Uh no there's no security or parental control or anything like that.

    Im running Norton but would it be that if its only happening at night?

    maybe - do you have a full paid subscription - make a note of any subscription keys
    and i would remove as a test , using the removal tool
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    Norton Removal Tool
    I would recommend that you restart the PC and run the removal tool for a second time - I have found instances where the removal tool needs to be run twice to fully remove all traces of norton and symantec from the PC
    https://www-secure.symantec.com/nor...t=Norton Core&pvid=f-core-cur&version=current

    All Versions - The Norton Removal Tool uninstalls all Norton 2010/2009/2008/2007/2006/2005/2004/2003 products, Norton 360 and Norton SystemWorks 12.0 from your computer.

    wireless does not always work in safemode - but try this

    - try safemode with networking
    as the PC starts keep tapping F8 - a menu appears - choose
    safemode with networking - see if that works

    what windows version do you have ?

    can you log into the router - whats the make and exact model - it may have a QoS setting to set up certain Mac address and limit the access - this maybe set for the wireless adapter mac address

    post an ipconfig /all - to see the mac address

    Same result :/


    I had a look at the router logs and i found the point where it stopped working but it says if I'm correct that the request was blocked after 12.00pm by 192.168.0.3 which is my laptop? it was fine up until 12am. Any ideas?

    -----------[Service blocked: HTTP] from source 192.168.0.3, Sunday, Jan 06,2013 00:00:01
    Firewall: packet accept. 192.168.0.3(56506) --> 122.56.115.143(80), Protocol TCP.

    Reset your router to default and set it up again. Or figure out what part of the router limits connections to certain IP addresses based upon time, and disable it.

    Maybe your bro has been playing games with the router settings...
