ERROR - 'default gateway is not available'

Just installed new WN802T Access Point. Previous network connections provided by Centurylink DSL modem w/built in wireless worked fine.

But with the WN802T, I get "default gateway is not available". Windows 7 trouble shooter will fix the problem but it will reoccur. Wireless network will show as "connected" but without access.

This is in a small business enviroment.

thanks in advance for your help.

Here's my configuration:
DSL in -> DSL Modem -> SonicWall TX180 -> NetGear 24 port switch -> several wired PC's, printers & NetGear WN802t Access Point -> 3 Laptops.

I have one Dell laptop that has no problems. But there are 2 HP Envy 15-3040nr laptops that will connect and work for a few minutes but then loose access even though they still show a connection.

I suspect that it's an issue with the HP laptops. All three of the laptops are running Windows 7.

When hardwired, they work fine.
