Hi everyone,

I have a continuing problem that I need help with. When running IE 9, as well as earlier versions, I will get disconnected if I go to certain sites. There does not seem to be a pattern to what sites will cause this, other than saying that it is often sites with heavy graphics, video, etc.
This DOES NOT happen when using Google Chrome. I have had this problem since ever since using my current computer and switching from dsl to cable internet. I had posted a while back, but got no response. The link below includes the screenshots that represents the sequence of events when I get disconnected. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks so much!

Is your cable internet an "always on" connection meaning you don't have to log on with a username and password? It appears your computer is still set up for your DSL connection its trying to dial out. What Version of Windows are you using?

Thanks so much for responding! I am using Windows Vista Home Premium, and I am always connected to the internet, that is, I do not enter a username and password. I am not so great with connections and the like. I believe when I changed from DSL to cable the installer set everything up. Thanks again for responding. Hope to hear from you.
