Internet turns off and have to restart computer

  1. I've had this problem for a few months now. My internet will turn off randomly and I have to restart the laptop for it to come back on. I'm not sure if this is relevant or not but sometimes before it happens I'll get a warning on the bottom right saying high cpu usage by Windows or the internet browser. Anyone have an idea what might be the issue?

    Edit: Oops wrong board. Sorry about that.

    I guess its nothing serious and myself experienced this sometimes! May be its a problem for your internet connection.

    The thing is it happens constantly though. Sometimes every 15 or 20 minutes it does it.

    Have you check your computer for spyware and such. These things can cause the problems you are having.

    Perhaps you should go here to get your laptop cleaned. :)

    Before rebooting, try this:
    • start->run and enter
    • runas /user:administrator cmd
    • enter the password
    • this gives a new b/w vga window and you enter
    • ipconfig /flushdns
    • net stop "dns client"
    then try to ping

    what's the result?
