    I lose my internet connection, usually after a period of inactivity (maybe an hour or longer) BUT - it only affects my browsers. I can still be connected in other programs such as MIRC or other non browser based programs. I have to reboot my system to reconnect my browser.
    I have Comcast Cable (for about 6 months now). I used to have PacBell DSL and don't remember having this problem.
    I have a Netgear wireless router, but I use 2 main computers that are both directly connected to the router. Both my systems are Pentium 4 and I am running WinXP Home edition on both of them. I have switched to Firefox recently: same problem persists with IE and with Firefox.
    Any help would be appreciated.
