Solved constantly have to reset connection adapter.

Specs: Windows 7
I run the troubleshooter, it resets the adapter, and fixes the "default gateway not available" issue. Then I can access any particular website. HP computer running windows 7

It could be that you need to get updated drivers for your motherboard hardware. Go only to mfg's web site Support>Downloads>Drivers for your model and version of Windows.

It could be malware, run Malwarebytes free version. Uncheck free trial of pay for version, add check to scan for root kits (should not be needed this time but I prefer having it on), Uncheck any remaining real time protections (manual scan only), and uncheck start with Windows. Update, scan and remove all it finds.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Sorry. The "local network connection adapter". When the troubleshooter finishes, it says " default gateway not available" now with a status of "fixed". Then all is well until the next time this happens. Usually 2-3 times daily. Thanks for your help.

I implemented your "Malwarebytes" suggestion. Problem has not re-occurred since earlier this AM install. Will confirm tomorrow if no more issues after 24 hours. Thanks much!
