my comp is using windows xp. i'm sharing internet with my flatmates, we all connect to a router...

the problem is, sometimes my computer suddenly got disconnected from internet. on the LAN status, i still see some activity, can send and receive, but i cannot access the internet. whenever this happens, i restart the computer and then only i can access back the internet. when my computer got disconnected, my friends still can access the internet. only mine can't. is there something wrong with my hardware or is it the software ? btw, i think the lan port is built in the motherboard...

So you all connect using a lan and not a wan? Do you have any firewalls which may be disrupting the connection? Do your friends encounter similar problems? Or does it always start with you and then leads to them. How old is your cable modem?
