does anyone know why my rig or whatever it is keeps acting wierd. What happens it eventually after like an hour or something my compute doesn't go on internet explorer or anything it says i am offline. My modem and router both say everything is hooked up and working. but my computer says it can't access the internet although it does say in the netwokring folder is hooked up and operating.any ideas. i usually have to wait like 15 mintues and restart and up the net comes again.

Have you turned off the power settings? Sounds like your hardware is going to sleep and not waking up properly.

I would recommend disabling all power/sleep functions and see how it goes. Wouldn't hurt to check the bois power saving features also. Sometimes the ol' hybernation features just don't work correctly.

My 2 cents

I've heard of some online games killing the TCP/IP connection and requiring a reboot to get it back. Never caught a fix for it. Recommend the manufacturers site for the game. Look for patches, faq etc.
