    Hi, so my laptop has been having some majors errors for the past few days. Essentially, I can start using my internet for a few minutes at a time, then I notice nothing will load, and I no longer have internet access. It still shows 5 bars in the bottom right corner for a few seconds, then changes to "Limited Access", with the little yellow warning triangle. As soon as I click "Open Network and Sharing Center", it takes a few seconds, then my internet works again. Every time I open it, it works again for a few minutes. I have to constantly do this, and it renders me unable to play games online, and such, as I get disconnected every 2 minutes.

    As far as I've noticed (Haven't checked it in detail yet) , this only happens with my network, not the neighbours, friend's house, etc.

    My laptop is a TOSHIBA Satellite P755 -0M6
    I am running Windows 7, I haven't had this error in the past.
    I'll list any details needed, if you just ask. I'm not sure myself what information is relevant, so I'll let you guys ask the questions.

    Thank you very much for reading, please let me know if you have any solutions!
