Computer keeps disconnecting from Internet

I have an HP desktop and I am running Windows XP. I am currently connected to the family router with a wireless usb connection.

Every few minutes it disconnects from the internet until I hit repair and get it running again.

This happens only to my computer and it happens no matter where I take my computer. I've had my computer at my moms, sister-in-laws and grandmothers house where it disconnects as well. If I remember correctly it even disconnects when I'm wired up.

Any ideas, suggestions or comments will be greatly appreciated!

Check your connection settings, set it up anew.

I should have mentioned that I've done this several times. I did it again just now - its still cutting me offline.

As for settings, I don't know how to check anything thats not basic, or rather I wouldn't know how to recognize if anything is wrong.

Since you have other systems...successfully using the same router/same gateway...compare your settings for the connection...with theirs.

Or simply set the connection up anew properly, using the XP connection wizard.

What makes your network settings...different from all those who have no problem?
