I'm using Windows 7 Professional with SP1. I have a Virgin Super Hub (Netgear wireless router and modem combined).
I have a wireless connection to a laptop which is fine.
I have a wired connection to a desktop that is fine most of the time, but almost every day when I first turn it on I cannot access the internet.
- I right-click on the network icon in my task bar and click 'troubleshoot problems'.
- It goes through its diagnostics.
- It eventually comes up with ' the default gateway is not available' and 'fixed'.
- Then I can access the internet without issue for the whole day.
I've tried updating drivers, and using a static IP, but neither had any positive effect.
Strangely - I can access the internet at the moment (obviously) but I cannot access my router. If I go to
192.168.0.1 I get a 'page does not exist' error.
I can ping bbc.co.uk but not with
-r 1 - with that I get timeouts.
How can my internet be working but I cannot communicate with my router?
Rebooted my router and now
192.168.0.1 works. But pinging any address with
-r 1 times out.
Not sure if any of that is related to the actual issue - my default gateway getting "lost" every now and again.
