When I stay logged into my computer for around 5 hours or so my internet connection stops working. I am connected to a router with 2 other computers and they still work so it's just mine. Is there a setting enabled on my computer that I'm not aware of or am i experiencing an error with my computer? PLEASE HELP. The only way to make it work again is to log out and log back in.

Please show the following--it may contain a hint.

Start, Run, CMD, OK to open a command prompt:

Type the following command:

IPCONFIG /ALL

Right click in the command window and choose Select All, then hit Enter.
Paste the results in a message here.

If necessary use a text file and removable media to copy the results to a computer with internet access.

I doubt that this is the cause, but ipv6 sometimes causes strange problems and you don't need it, so suggest that you do:

Start - Run - ipv6 uninstall - OK

Other than this I can't think of what might be causing your problem other than maybe some kind of malware (virus, spyware, etc.).

No additional ideas yet. Please show an ipconfig /all AFTER your internet connection stops working. You'll need to save it in a temporary file and then post it after you regain connection.

That's a perfectly good ipconfig /all. Looking only at that I would guess that you have perfect internet access. The following tests may shed some light on the problem.

Open a command prompt and try the following commands. When you do this at first you will get Replies to each ping. We want to know what happens when you lose the connection and try the pings again.

ping 192.168.1.100
ping 192.168.1.1
ping 4.2.2.2
ping yahoo.com

(If you are not familiar with this troubleshooting, those pings are testing communication with your own NIC, your router, an internet address, and an internet name to test DNS.)
