I think this is more a setting thing, There is a setting in the NIC card properties that will turn off the NIC to save power. Even PC's have it.
Go to Start> Control panel> network adapters> Local Area Network Properties (right click on it and choose properties)> On the general Tab on the top you should have "Connect using" and your NIC and a configure button to the right, click on it and go to the Power management tab, and make sure the "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not checked.
I think it's turning it off and can't resume it so it gives a default IP address (169.), witch doesn't permit the connection, The NIC will store info from the network and can't use it so it displays "Limited or no connectivity".
Limited of no connectivity usually, not always, will be caused by a firewall. So thats a possibility also.
Do you use one?
Updating the drivers is not a bad idea. If you don't know the drivers it needs, try using Aida32 to see your NIC model and get the correct drivers for it. Also Flashing the BIOS is not a bad idea too...

What's different with the other computer that has no issues?
Computer inactivity often, more often than not, drops the internet connection so you end up with "limited connectivity' issue and your IP address becomes 169. something,something,something I don't recall the exact number. Then when you reboot, the computer acquires the new IP address, and starts new connection and all is well, till the next timeout.
Do you have a router? Is there a way to set it to something like 'keep alive' always?
Can you do something similar in the network configuration?
Are you using a firewall? If so which. Internet Explorer? Perhaps you can list the DHCP and DNS addresses in both in the trusted areas to keep the connection going.
Do your setting conserve power to the network adapters (powersave), if so, shut it off.
