My computer says everything is running fine. My modem is looking normal as well as the router, all the wires are connected properly. Yet every ten minutes or so my connection stops. Again, the computer doesn't pick this up, but I can't get online, on MSN, all that other stuff. Then when I restart it works again for another little while before conking out again. If anyone knows, please tell me how to fix it!

Two things.
First- Clear the cookies, files, and history in IE and if you use FF clear them there too.
IE> Tools> Internet Options> Clear cookies, delete Files, and clear history an set the days to the lowest you can live with. I am st to 0.

FF> Tools> Options> Clear All.

Second_ Go to Start> Run> cmd> Ipconfig /flushDNS

Let us know if it works for you.

Nah... it still booted me off... I figured out a way to get back online without restarting though. I have to disable (from the computer) my LAN connection and manually reset the router. Then I enable the connection and it works for a bit then stops again.

I believe you may have a damaged or worn coax on your ISP's side of the modem. Have you had your ISP run a line test?

another thought to add. what kind of router do you have? have you checked for a firmware update? firmware updates fix software issues related to , in your case, router. it may or may not fix your specific issue, but it will get your software up to date, and possible solve it. you could also be suffering from a buffer overflow issue coming from your router. try this, un plug your router for a day or so, run your internet from the modem and leave your router out of the equasion for t he time. this way you can narrow the net issue to your side or your isp's side, a bit of troubleshooting.post back with your results.
