Default Gateway not available

I've seen a few posts like this, but none of the solutions in those posts have worked for me. So here it goes:
For the last week or so, I've been having issues with my ASUS notebook disconnecting from my wireless network or having a limited connection. This would happen maybe twice a day, but eventually I went online and I found that I had an outdated driver for my Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230, and as soon as I downloaded the latest driver, my notebook would disconnect every 5 minutes or so. Running the troubleshooter just keeps returning the same thing; Default gateway not available. It also does this annoying thing where it'll disconnect and reconnect over and over again, so quickly that the network sharing center can't even register it's happening.
I've tried resetting the WINSOCK, IPv4 TCP/IP, and IPv6 TCP/IP stacks, I've tried a clean boot to see if it was a startup program affecting my connections, and I've changed my power settings so they don't turn off my adapter. I even tired booting my computer in safe mode, which didn't help whatsoever because I have no clue what I'm doing.

Here's my ipconfig /all:

For starters, I have coompared my settings to yours and I cannot see any noticeable differences. So, have you tried going back to that outdated driver? Sometimes the latest is not always the greatest. Have you tried rebooting your modem and router and then doing an ipconfig /release and ipconfig /renew?

I searched around a bit on this never ending problem with the Intel Centrino Wireless N-2230. :confused:

Many people with this same NIC are having the same connection problem after a certain amount of time.

From what I have read this problem came up after a Windows update and can be fixed by uninstalling the newer driver and reinstalling an older Windows driver.

The procedure to fix this problem is explained on the second page last post in the link below. Hope it works. :)
