hey, there has been a recent problem with my internet connection lately with a 1701HG Gateway and my computer. when i first turn on my computer and connect to the internet, it works fine, but after a while (usually about an hour), the internet stops working or works extremely slowly. i checked the status, and it looks like the problem has to deal with the amount of "packets" sent. the number jumps up to hundreds of thousands when it usually gradually increases. the number of packets recieved practically stops, only recieving maybe 2 packets at a time. if i disable the device and then enable it again, the same problem occurs. however, if i turn off my computer and restart it, the internet becomes normal again. that is, just for another hour. i've swept my pc with AVG, ad-aware,and microsoft anti-spyware, but the problem isn't going away. does anyone know how to fix this problem?

if anyone can help with this situation, that'd be great. thanks in advance.

Spyware/malware has seized your machine. You need to post a Hijackthis log, probably just go direct to the security forum for this one. :)
