    Basically I've been having some issues with my internet connection, which strangely seem to occur when I'm viewing YouTube videos.

    Each time I watch a video it works fine for a few minutes, then suddenly my internet connection drops. The status on my laptop still says "Connected" but I'm unable to load any pages, on any browser. The only way I'm able to get my internet connection back is to restart the computer.

    Any ideas why this might be happening? :confused:
