So im in college and my laptop works with my university network just fine but whenever i come home i cant ise it because as soon as i turn on my laptop it causes the network to crash for both my laptop and the main computer.

All i get is "the DNS lookup failed" fromy browser.

We called our ISP and the first person said they didnt see any problems and the second guy said he saw we were getting "high interference noise" that was causing our connection to drop.

My laptop is an alienware m17x R3.

Did you check your IP settings on your NIC? Did you assign a static IP to your laptop? If so and there's an IP conflict with another device on the network, that could be a possible cause. It could also be an advanced setting on your NIC. You might take a peak in Device Manager -> [NIC] -> Properties. I hope this gets you started. Let me know how it goes. Cheers! :)
