I lose my internet connection for no reason for very brief (about 1-5 secs) periods, i noticed it because my browser IE8 says something about losing connection to the server and then it automatically refreshes all my tabs, i tried to use firefox 4 and it has the same problem, because of this i can't download any files bigger than 20mb or so, which is quite annoying.
My modem is located on another PC and the internet connection is being shared over my local network, i am confident that there are no problems with my modem or my router as the other PC's on my house work just fine.
I've already tried reinstalling IE and firefox, also reinstalling my network adapter drivers and scanning my PC with NOD32, Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Spybot Search & Destroy and Lavasoft Ad-Aware and i'm still facing the problem.
OS: Windows XP SP3
Firewall: Windows Firewall
AV: Eset NOD32
I'd greatly appreciate any help you can offer as i can't locate the cause for this issue.
Thanks in advance,
