Connection lost

  tomdonna 08:11 28 Feb 07

I am constantly losing my connection on my pc running xp home. The dsl modem lights indicate all is well. I am not using a router.
If I right click on network connections and hit "repair" I instantly am back on line.When I use the same connections on another pc running Windows 98SE I never lose my connection.This has been happening for about a month and has gotten progressively worse. Any ideas? Thanks, Tom

If this is through a USB connection open Device manager and in the USB section open the root hubs and untick the boxes under the " Power Management " tab that say " Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power " Do this on all root hubs . Hope this might help .
