Certain webpages cause me to lose my internet connection, but I stay connected to my router.

    I hope you have your thinking cap on.

    I'm having the strangest problem.

    When I boot up my computer I can connect to the internet (throught a
    WNP111 wireless adapter). I can do a myriad of things online. I can
    check my gmail. I can watch youtube. I can browse digg. I can even
    do pretty intensive things like video chatting on Skype. None of
    these things cause a problem. However the second I try to check my
    webmail, or if I try to download certain podcasts (like Scientific
    American) I lose my connection to the internet. It's strange because
    I stay connected to the router (with a pretty strong connection) but I
    am no longer connected to the internet through said router.

    Things I've found while trying to fix this:
    -At least two other computers on this network can access the webpages
    that cause me so much trouble.
    -I've used my wireless adapter on my roommate's laptop and his laptop
    has no problems.
    -This same problem happened at my last house with an entirely
    different router.
    -If I unplug then reattach my adapter it seems to reset the connection
    and I can access those functions that do not cause me trouble.
    -I've uninstalled my adapter and reinstalled it with the latest
    drivers, it had no effect.

    If anyone has any suggestions I could really use them. This is
    driving me nuts.

    I will give it a shot, however, I have tried the adapter on other
    computers with no trouble.

  3. Hi
    It could be that the adapter is defective.
    However short of getting a new adapter you can try this.
