Good day to all you Gurus.
I am running a Dell machine with Vista Home basic.
For about 16 hours each day I have IE, YM, MSN and Windows Mail open. Every hour or so I lose the connection to IE, YM and MSN but not to Windows Mail.
When I do Diagnose and Repair, I get one of four messages.
1. Windows could not find a problem.
2. Turn off the TCP setting that is not compatible with your router.
3. Turn on TCP performance settings.
4. Reset network adapter LAN.
Sometimes the repair will work but most times not and it can take up to half hour to get reconnected.
Any help, in simple terms, would be appreciated.
Thank you for your time,
GEORGE.

There's not a whole bunch to go on here. I wonder if there's an incompatibility between your router, modem, or your ISP and your computer. Most often I've seen this due to problems with the DHCP Broadcast Flag or with IPv6.

Not knowing a whole bunch about networking beyond this, I'm moving your post to the Networking forum to see if you can get some more expert help.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I had almost the same problem, but I had to turn off my computer to get it started back up. Mine would go off 3 or 4 times a day. Someone told me to change my computer to where it would never go to sleep. It worked and I haven't had any trouble with it. Go to Control panel - power options - then recommended settings. Click on change plan settings. Change put computer to sleep to never. I also changed the display to never also, just to be on the safe side. I hope this works for you.

Since my last post things have worsened. I now lose my connection every 5 minutes. Sometimes as soon as I do a repair and get the Internet etc back I lose it again. This has to be something to do with Vista as it does not happen on an XP machine.
GEORGE.
