Every so often my internet wont load any pages. It's like it's disconnected but the wireless icon says very good signal strength and anywhere between 18 and 54 Mbps. When I click repair it says there was a problem clearing the arp cache. So I go to "run" type "cmd" then type "netsh interface ip delete arpcache". It then says ok. Most of the time I have to restart the laptop and the internet will be working again. This is annoying and seems to be happening about once a day. Does anyone know why or how to fix this? Thanks.

I did that but I just put my computer to sleep and brought it back up a few minutes later and the same thing happened. The only difference was when I hit repair it didn't say couldnt clear arpcache; it said windows repaired the problem but I still had the same problem. Great connection and speed just no pages would load.
