    Have to use ipconfig /release and renew for internetaccess

    Hello, I started having this problem yesterday when my wireless connection showed limited connectivity. After I do the ipconfig commands it works for a while and then I have to renew it again. It is very annoying. The same problem occurs on a different computer.
    The router is TP-Link TL-MR3220. I have tried turning it on and off again and resetting it.

    Netsh wlan:

    Really did not need that information. That only shows that you are pulling an IP and also includes your Public IP info. If this is a wireless issue. Need the info from "netsh wlan show all".

    So far I have confirmed that my computer doesn't have the same problem with different routers. The router also does not let me connect to the settings page ( unless the internet cable connected to it is unplugged. Not sure if that is normal or not. So any ideas?
