As the title describes, my network card sometimes (Now more regularly than ever) deactivates completely and renders me unable to connect to the internet. I seemingly cannot activate/deactivate the network card while this happens and my only solution is to restart the computer and run an error scan on the network card (It only finds the error if I restart first).

What might this problem occur from? If anyone has any way of preventing this I'd be most grateful.

As oddba11 points out it could be that the card needs to be pulled out and reseated. However if this is the Ethernet Port on the motherboard, it is likely a failure, or a software problem (driver) if you uninstall the network adapter in device manager, then restart windows it should find new hardware and reinstall the driver. Is this a Bug Box brand computer (HP/Compaq) Custom build, or an Asus laptop?
