Browsing problems after computer has been idle

  Johnnn 23:20 08 Nov 05

Hi all,

I have this nagging problem which i have no idea how to resolve...... I turn the computer and everything is fine, browser works, MSN messenger works, other internet dependant program work fine.... then i leave the computer for a while, say about an hour or so, then suddenly i can no longer browse, but other internet programs are still working (unless i close them and reopen them)

I've had this problem using ADSL and on Cable, so not an ISP issue, i'm using a router... the other computers on the network (i.e. connected to the router) dont have this problem...I've checked all the proxy settings..... It appears i'm being timed out... tried refreshing the connection, i.e. releasing and getting a new IP, nothing happens

Can you please help,

System info

OS - XP Home - All upto date.
Network Card - Realtec
Processor - XP 2000 (AMD)
Memory - 512MB

Thanks in advance
