    hi there I am having problems surfing the net I am running windows 98 second edition and ie 5 i make a connection with my isp which is bt openworld after surfing for a short period of time say 30mins this page cannot be displayed appears and cannot find server appears in the task bar. my connection to my isp is still in tact but whatever web page I type in it will not be displayed. if I disconnect then try to re-connect the connection is established but once again the page cannot be displayed. the only way I can get round this is by restarting my pc then once again I can start surfing but only for a limited time before the whole sequence starts again. can anyone please help me?
    thank you for your time
