Very strange problem????
OK, i have cable internet which is always connected, so whenever i click my browser, it connects.....but, the last few days i have run into a wierd issue.....whenever i let the computer sit idle for a couple hours or so, and then i click my browser, it seems it has lost its connection to the net. My connection to the network in my house is still good, and the other rigs in the house are still connected, the modem is fine, the router is fine, everything is just fine, except my connection is lost. The only way i can get it back is to restart my computer. I have scanned for viruses, spyware, etc. and my rig is clean, i have not installed any new software, or deleted anything except trivial stuff, so i am utterly confused as to why this is happening. Does anyone have any ideas as to what i can do to remedy this problem, it is quite aggrivating. Please help.:confused: :banghead:

Try entering the DNS by hand rather than using the Auto.On just that one machine. I've had machines that kept losing theirs, this always worked for me. But I simply don't know enough to say if this is the same problem/

Just a quick run down...

remove and reinstall the NIC
clear and reset your router
as Daniel ~ mentioned. Set up your NIC with a hard IP and gateway. Also use ipconfig /all to find the dns that your provider is using and add it to your nic

OK, i dont know much about this area, so what exactly are the DNS and NIC that i need to fix. These are probably silly questions but, i am kinda a noob in this area, so a detailed description as to what i need to do would be greatly appreciated. thanks guys.

NIC = your network card
DNS = domain name server
Basically you will need to manually setup what is being done automatically by DHCP.

go to start> run > type CMD
at the prompt type ipconfig /all

this will show you your network info

manually enter this info into your card settings

I will tell you more if you need
