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.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
