My other computer, if it is on for 2-4 hours the internet stops working. If I go on a website after my computer is on for 3-4 hours it will say it is not found for every website. After about 2 hours of my compuer being on my internet will start to go slower. But after I restart my computer my internet will be working fine. till about 2-4?

Does someone know why this happens and if I can stop it?

What security programs are you running, antivirus, antispyware, firewall..? Do you have other computers on your LAN and do they stop working also? When it stops working contact your ISP and have them do a line test fo you. See if it is a wiring problem. When it stops working does the network activity icon in you task bar show activity? What about your task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Del)? If it does you may have malware infecting your system.

This sounds like an overheating problem to me. I would suggest going to the following site and getting Speedfan this will check temp in your computer.

SpeedFan is a freeware program that monitors voltages, fan speeds and temperatures

How are you connected - broadband or dialup?

Most dialups will kick you off if you are inactive for a certain amount of time.
