I'm having some problems with my internet connection yet I'm not sure where exactly in the forum the problem would go. The router works fine, lights are all on and everything is fine and dandy. I'm used a wiredconnection to the router and as I'm playing games on the laptop the connection icon within the bottom right of the taskbar pops up with an exclamation mark beside it saying that it can't get an internet connect. I have to reboot my laptop to be able to use the internet again.

Rebooting the modem does nothing.
Removing and then re-connecting the ethernet cable does nothing.
Only a restart of the laptop fixes the problem but I'm constantly afraid of the connection dying out mid-game. It happens within hours or minutes.

Welcome Ethan :)
Have you tried updating your network drivers first? Please post the modem, router, OS and computer model next time.
