Need to regularly repair my Wireless connection (renew my IP address)

Recently I have started losing connection (approx every 10mins) to the internet when accessing public addresses and can only fix this by repairing the connection (renewing the IP address). The VPN connection I am using for work remains solid and it's only when I try to access external sites that I experience the problem.

 

No other devices in the house are experiencing the problem.

 

I'm using the Intel PROSet/Wireless WiFi Connection Utility tool to manage my connection and have updated the driver since experiencing this problem.

 

Any help appreciated. 

 

thanks.

9 times out of 10 this is caused by interference from another nearby wi-fi source.

 

Try changing to a less busy channel (if you are using a newer hub with auto channel selection try using manual selection). InSSIDer for Windows or NetStumbler for mac can help you find a suitable channel.
