    About a month ago I had a virus hit my computer, I have managed to get rid of it. I've run my anti-virus software several times and it says there isn't a virus now. My computer is hooked up via wireless router to my wife's computer which is hooked up directly to DSL.

    While online I keep getting a Work Offline Box which pops up on the screenfrom time to time, and I have to reconnect with DSL. Before the virus, I never had any problems staying online with DSL and having to reconnect.

    I was hoping that someone here on the forum might know a little something about this sort of thing and help me get rid of the Work Offline Box.

    Thanks for your help!

    So, you're using ICS on your wife's computer apparently; why--because the modem has only a USB connection?

    My first guess on your problem would be that you haven't fixed all the corruption caused by the virus. Call me pessimistic, but I think the shortest time between here and a fixed PC is a reinstall of Windows, if you are using Windows.

    But make sure that it is not actually your wife's computer losing the connection--especially the USB if that is what's used.

    Oh, and not knowing the specifics about your OSes, NICs, network, etc., will make it difficult for people to give good advice or suggestions.
