    i dono if this is the right place to post this, but anyways...

    recently my internet has been acting weird, only for my computer tho, the other computers in my network are working fine. what happens is everytime i restart my computer as soon as i get back to my desktop the internet works for like 10-20 seconds, aim automatically starts up and i can browse for a bit, then it just stops working, altho the connection seems to be fine, no more packets are being sent, however aim still works, but nothing else. its a really weird problem, once in a while the internet will come back for a few hours, then it will randomly go out again. again this is only happening to my computer, all the other computers internet is fine. i have norton anti-virus 6, i scanned and found nothing, i did ad-aware, spybot S&D and removed the spywares and adwares that i found. i look at my processes and i dont see anything out of the ordinary. i have Cable High speed RoadRunner. ive tried also disabling and then re-enabling my connection, and then the DHCP reassigns the same IP but no packets are received, so i really dont kno what to do and i beg for help!!!

    if you need any other information feel free to ask and please help me out.

    Did you install any new programs? I remember I had this problem once when I installed something and tinkered with the registry. :T

    I've seen this before related to the network card, it is a very cheap simple option to try that may just fix the issue.

    Cheers :D
