    Ipconfig /release, only drops the connection. It has nothing else to do with networking. Really need more information. What ISP do you have? What router or Gateway are you using? It appears from your screenshot that you are able to connect to the Gateway/Router. So what is your real problem? Not able to go to any websites? Is the connection dropping on the Router/Gateway, or at the ISP side.
