So I got a new laptop a few weeks ago. It's amazing, runs everything flawlessly, and the connection's great, or so I thought.
From first glance the connection runs perfectly (we have a wireless N network in our house), and the transfer rate seems pretty fucking high in most cases (seen it get up to 2.5 mb/s, something my old computer would never do). So after using it for a few days, I was starting to notice lag spikes I was getting randomly. The spike usually lasts for ~10 seconds, but there have been times where the connection entirely dies for a minute or two. This seems to happen no matter what I'm doing, playing WoW, fucking around on vent, browsing websites, IMing, whatever.
From doing the Diagnose and Repair option while the problem is happening, it tells me that it found a problem but can't be fixed through repairing or whatever. Also msn was telling me it was a problem connecting to the dns server. ALSO my connection mentioned problems connecting to the dns server another time too, so that seems to be the problem.
Is there anything I can do to fix this? Also we have 2 different networks in the house (ones basically an extension of the other, just it's a different router), I've tried using both and the problem seems to still persist. Also if it's worth noting, the connection problems only happen on this computer. My brother tells me he hasn't been getting any of this, and from what I see my old computer doesn't have any connection issues.
Edit: Also looking at the connection status it says
IPv4 Connectivity: Internet
IPv6 Connectivity: Limited
...Is that limited connection good? I also have no idea what IPv4/IPv6 is, but yeah.
