    Intermittent Wireless - Default Gateway Not Available


    Hi all,

    Every 5 - 20 minutes on my CenturyLink home internet, I get Limited access internet only. Troubleshooting or turning on / off airplane mode typically solves it.

    I tried Device Power Management (not allowing it to turn off the adapter to save power) but that hasn't helped. I disable / re-enabled the device (Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230)

    You're not alone, however as far as I'm aware no-one has managed to find out what causes it. I think this was the latest thread on the issue, but as far as I know is still unresolved:

    Well... This only happened recently as I moved and got a new router from Century Link and had to set up all new internet. I may have to get on the phone with them... *shudder*
