    Oh and another thing, while it happened I couldn't access the setup for the modem/router, I don't know if this means anything just thought I would shout it out.
    Most modems have a default login that is standard. Google for your make and model.

    Sounds like you need to enable IPv6 on your computer. Then go into the modem/router setup and see if there is an option to disable IPv6 on the modem/router (if you internet provider does not required IPv6). If IPv6 is disabled on the modem/router then it shouldn't matter if IPv6 is enabled or not on the computer.

    Hmm, i'm no network guy but try to update the drivers for your preferred Local Area Network. I would go for just using the PCI one as i'm certain that it's faster than the motherboards built-in WiFi.

    No what I mean is that when this error whatever it is happens, I cannot get to the modem login page, the default gateway doesn't work nor does it work by typing in my preferred ipv4 ip address.

    I'm not on WiFi, I'm using a cable.

    Tried that and says both are up to date though the pci one does however only have compatibility with XP and 7 according to the TP-Link site..

    I'm only telling you to turn it back on on the client, so that maybe you can communicate with the router and turn it off at the source.

    Is the router/modem supplied by your Internet Provider? Have you tried calling them about the issue?

    Oh okay, right hm well shall try it now.

    And yes it is supplied by my ISP and no I haven't yet called them about this issue, thought I would first give it a go myself though I get a feeling that the modem isn't the problem here, it's more my computer.

    When this happens I still have access through the phones and stuff.
