This is my first post to the forum. I'm not a noobie but not an expert either :) .
My problem is that after some problems with a video driver going bad and doing a reinstall of XP Home now my broadband (cable modem) internet connection seems to time out after a few minutes of inactivity. When you move the mouse a window pops up saying that the connection to the internet is no longer available, retry or work offline. When you hit retry all is well untill it times out again. This reminds me of the old dial up days when the connection would drop. I have a network connection through a router to acces the internet. This has been working fine for over two years until recently. I have looked over all the LAN settings and do not see anything that suggest a setting is wrong. I have the same problem with IE6 and Mozilla Firefox browzers. I have attempted to attach a file showing the window describing to problem.
