Default Comp keeps losing internet. HELP!

My g/f's Dell (Yeah, I know) keeps losing it's connection to the wireless network in our building. It will only go out for a second and then come back. I have no way to reset the router right now, I have thought about that. My computer is running off the same network and I havent had any problems at all. Any ideas aside from it being a dell? NIC going bad? Its 1.5 yrs old. Thanks!!

Yeha, probably an issue with the nic card. If the network is running fine and your comp is running fine, then, yeah, it's her problem... Try a different nic card to find out if it's it though....

I have it online and it is downloading AVG at 1.5k on cable modem!! I think the computer is not thingking the net is there and it trying to reconnect, hence the boot from the network.
