    So, I will be in the middle of playing a game and will randomly disconnect and it shows that I have no internet access. However, if i just simply switch the socket the Ethernet cable is plugged into on the extension lead then it will connect and I will be back on instantly. (I don't think it's a problem with the socket because I just use this socket again next time I disconnect)

    Any ideas what the problem could be?

    I am not sure what you mean by extension cord. What do you have in terms of the setup? Like modem / router / etc?
