Constantly losing internet connection

  1. Pardon if the message is short.

    Whenever i use firefox, approximately 5-7 mins into my session
    the internet connection is lost. I have also tried using IE, but to no avail.
    I can ping pages such as google, so i think the problem may be software on my computer, but i am not sure.
    I got Vundo a few days ago and it seems eradicated with some help i received on this site, so many of the
    scans and logs have been used and tested.
    I am not sure what to do...

    thanks for the time

    here are some logs

    What type of Internet access do you have? Are you using a router in combination with the modem?

    as of now, its a wireless internet connection.
    im in a school dorm right now.
    but this weekend i plan on going home to see if i can fix my laptop there and grab an
    ethernet cable or just take it to a shop.
    I was starting to think it was a problem with my Avira antivirus. so i installed and uninstalled, but i don't think thats working
