Welcome to bc. What is your internet connection? Do you use a cable modem, router? More info on your setup can help people figure it out.

YES IT DOES. I tried several different approaches I found online but none of it helped. I have even scrubbed the harddrive and reinstalled the OS several times.

When you say, connection dies, does it mean, your browser stops finding web pages?
Any errors displayed?
Did you try different browser?
Did you try "ping" command to see, if the connection is really lost?

If this is a brand new install - chances are it might be a hardware issue - do you have another NIC?

Is this desktop, or laptop?
Wired, or wireless connection?

1. Click Start>Run (Start>"Start search" in Vista).

2. Type in (or copy and paste):

cmd /c ping google.com>%temp%\$.$&notepad %temp%\$.$

and press Enter.

3. Notepad will open.

4. Copy all text in Notepad ([Ctrl-A], then [Ctrl-C]), and then post it (paste = [Ctrl-V]) in your next reply.

==========================================================================

Go Start>Run ("Start search" in Vista), type in:
cmd
Click OK (hit Enter in Vista).

At Command Prompt, paste this:
ipconfig /all>c:\ipconfig_all.txt&notepad c:\ipconfig_all.txt&exit
Hit Enter.

Copy and paste what you see in Notepad into a Reply here.

@Broni it happens on both a wired and wireless connection although it is worse in wireless. I have a XP Home OS so I need to know how to run test that way
