I am having similar problems with my Y530 that I just purchased 2 days ago. I had internet connectivity problems. The internet will work for long stretches of time, but then it will drop and the repair function cannot automatically repair the problem most of the time. Occasionally Windows will not be able to detect any network at all. I have other computers running on XP that connect to the home network without any problem. Distance or obstruction is not a problem.
I generally get this message after running Windows Diagnosis:
"Cannot Communicate with Primary DNS Server (22.214.171.124).
Networking Diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response."
Am running Windows Vista 64-bit system, with an Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100 Network Adapter.
Here is what I have done so far to try to resolve the problem:
1. Uninstalled ReadyComm - this helped, but the problem still exists less frequently. I have to reset the computer to reestablish a connection.
2. Turned down the roaming aggressiveness to 1 (low).
3. Turned off the TCP Window Scaling.
4. Reset TCP/IP Stack and Winsock to installation defaults.
5. Updated the network adapter drivers.
I am working with an old Linksys router (approx. 6 years old), so might this be the problem? However, when I try to directly plug in with the ethernet cable, I have similar problems as well. And the other computers connect to the router fine.
Here is what my ipconfig says for my wireless network adapter:
Connection-specific DNA Suffix .:

May resort to buying a new router, but perhaps it isn't the problem? Any help or advice is appreciated! Thank you.
