    Hi, try to update your network connections drivers.
    Also the internet connection will be stronger if you use the cable. (wired connection)

    I tried to update my wireless adapter but that didn't fix the problem. I just find it really weird because like 2 seconds after I exit the game, for example GMod, the list of WiFi's that I can connect to pops back up.

    Well I fixed my problem. I guess my wireless adapter was just faulty or something. It was like 50-70 bucks when I bought it from Fry's, and I maybe used it for 9 months tops. What a rip off; To everyone out there, Don't buy a DLINK Wireless adapter.

    Anyways, I went ahead and bought a 50ft Rocketfish Ethernet cord and now my internet is working beautifully, it's a lot faster too. Thanks Amai for trying to help me.
