computer won't stay online
« on: February 15, 2010, 12:38:33 AM »
i have a toshiba laptop with windows xp. i used it on vacation with a wireless connection and it worked fine. however when i use it at home with a cable modem, it will connect online. but after about 15 minutes when i change websites i get the web page cannot be displayed.....diagnose connection problem...or web site is unavailable message. even if i close it it will not reconnect until i restart the computer. any suggestions?
thanks

Open Network Settings / Connections (Control Panel) and make sure you are connecting on the LAN connection.
