Restarting the broadband modem and cable router physically, switching both off and on again.
Toggling with internet connection properties. Control panel=>internet options=>connections=>lan settings=> switching between the three options from time to time.
Problems faced: I stay connected to the internet for variable periods of time, and the connection will be inactive after some time. When it is inactive, I use the first method. If connection doesnt re-establish, I use the second method or a combination of both methods. I do not have this problem in the past. The internet speed slows down after some time of use, thereafter I have to repeat the steps to establish connection again. This problem occurred recently only for a time span of 1 month.
Both my desktop and notebook are connected to the router. This problem does not occur on my desktop.
Router: Netgear cable/DSL web safe router gateway RP614
Connection: Intel® PRO/100 VE Network Connection satellite M30 notebook
