The problem is that I can work on the internet for any period of time, say 10 minutes, with one or more tabs in a IE * window; then, when I select another tab, or website, or action within an open website, and a warning tells me that I am not connected to the internet and would I like to retry.

I have a desktop and a couple of laptops that are networked using Linksys modem and router.

I think that all drivers and firmware are current. I'm almost anal about updates, but there might be something that I am not aware needs updating, so don't assume I thought of everything.

This happens often enough to have become routine and annoying.

If anyone can point me in the right direction, I truly appreciate it.
