    Constantly Losing Internet Connection

    Does anybody know why I keep losing my internet connection?
    Everytime I do so I have to reset the modem and regain connection through
    the diagnostic tool in networking.
    I did not have this problem with XP. I have a broadband connection and I'm
    using the Ultimate version of Vista.
    It becomes a bugger when you want to leave your computer on throughout the
    day to download files.
    Just for the record also. This is the second time I have installed this
    Vista and the connection was fine on the first installation. It's wierd I
    tell you.
    Computers just rack my brains.

    I have had this happen several times -
    I am on DSL. My router and all other devices connected to the router are
    working fine but the Vista machine reports that it is not connected to the
    internet.
    After rebooting the machine - everything is working correctly -

    I haven't yet found a pattern that triggers that problem -
    interestingly - I have trillian running all the time and it remains
    connected, but Outlook and IE can't find a connection.

    IE doesn't even connect to the IP address of my router.

    I'm here looking for a resolution to the same problem... Intermittently,
    Vista thinks it has lost internet connection. I connect to the Internet
    through Verizon cable>RCA DCM315 Cable Modem>Linksys WRT54GP2A-AT
    VOIP\Wireless Gateway>Intel Pro 1000 PM network adapter...
