hii, im using a hp pavilion dv6000 laptop, its about 4-5 years old and, here is whats happening,

for some odd reason, my internet will suddenly not work via wireless or local, the 2 computers w/ globe, will have a caution sign.
Also according to networx, i'm receiving download = 0, upload = 0. Unless I restart my laptop, i am unable to access the internet, but after words it will work until the problems comes up again.

I tried other computers/laptops and they can connect to the internet no problem, so there is something wrong with this laptop.
Anyone know the reason why this is happening?

Do you mean wireless or ethernet?

Could be corrupted network drivers, non-Windows firewall or security suite, or stack/WINSOCK.

In Device Manager right click on the wireless and the ethernet and uninstall; reboot and let Windows discover the adapters and reinstall the drivers.

What firewall or security suite do, or did, you have on the machine?

(From a JohnWill post)

TCP/IP stack repair options for use with Vista or 7.

Start - All Programs - Accessories and right click on Command Prompt, select "Run as Administrator" to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset IPv4 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv4 reset reset.log

Reset IPv6 TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ipv6 reset reset.log

Reboot the machine.

Well, I didn't suggest any steps for a firewall. :)

That leaves the other two possibilities, and the steps I posted are how I know to rectify them. Even if they do not help they will do no harm.
