important things i make sure of as a tech when i reformat a computer.
latest chipset drivers, all the windows updates, all the drivers in general.
any one of these can cause issues like you are having. when you lose signal, do you see a "cable disconnected, or any error messages anywhere, especially from the taskbar on the bottom right? cable disconnected or something. when it disconnects, is the ISP link light on , onthe modem? does it change color or go out? any lights go out?
please post back
