Can only connect to a local connection from my laptop

I'm not entirely certain what has happened to my laptop but I was away for 2 weeks and came back a few days ago to find that my laptop doesn't connect to the wireless connection anymore. I know that the connection works because I can use it on my mobile and my housemate can still use it so I have concluded that it has something to do with my laptop. I'm currently using my phone's connection to get online.

My laptop does connect for the internet for anywhere between 5 - 40 minutes before it goes back to being connected locally when I restart my laptop. I have tried everything (from what I read online) to get it to work again, however it doesn't seem to work. I have found that the 6TO4 Adapter and the Microsoft ISATAP Adapter #2 both have yellow exclamation marks next to them with Code 10 and Code 31 errors. I'm not entirely certain what those adapters do or what those errors mean so I don't know what I can do to fix them. I would be extremely grateful to anyone who could help me with this problem.

If you require any further information please feel free to ask.

Thank you
