Losing my connection to the Internet

I boot my machine from a cold startup, win xp starts. I launch my browser, connection established to the internet over DSL. I can't
really explain this, but I'll lose my connection for no apparent reason. No other applications running. I restart the computer boots succesfully launch Internet Explorer connection to web established.

It seem intermitten, I do not understand it.

Any help greatly appreciated.

Best regards,

What provider? What type of dsl? PPPoE? Check tools/internet options/connections/lan settings/ and make sure that auto-detect settings is unchecked.

NAV 2002 was the culprit in my case. My dsl connnection would bomb and I had to reboot several times and/or 'repair' the connection over and over. I uninstalled NAV and now everything is cool again.

I was having a similar problem with my cable connection, and i think it was my NIC. It was an old one with no new drivers so i bought a new one and it seems to be ok so far. See if you can find an updated driver for your NIC.

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
