    Alright, this is probably the 100th disconnecting thread lol so please bear with me. Basically, in a nice summary, I disconnect from the internet when I go on certain sites on the web and disconnect in some of the games I play when I do "big actions" like changing channels/servers.

    I'm not exactly sure of all the info I need to put, but I use a linksys adapter with comcast... if that helps =S I'm not really a computer expert, so someone please who is willing to help, just tell me what I need to do and I shall!!! D=

    I had the exact same problem and so I removed the router from the equation and connected directly using my modem. Try than and see if it works. You will need to run TP straight cable from the modem to the back of the computers RJ-45 Jack, and then you will need to power cycle the modem (Turning off for about thirty seconds and then turning back on). Try that and see if it helps. Are you using DSL or cable, and if you are using DSL, check the filters? One more question, when you are disconnected are you able to ping websites by their ip address and by their host names, if not I would point towards a DNS issue.

    Then try an ethernet connection to the router to see if this is a wireless issue or bigger.
