The PC going out to internet is connected thru a modem/router, internet connection exists, but i have problems where it loses signal after some time, then it will be down. i have a static IP provided by my ISP and am using it to go out, eg x.x.x.33, problem is this pc is running the internal mail server software, and i run a dns check to find out that mail.myoffice.com.xx points to x.x.x.33, does this means this PC running the internal mail software must go out thru x.x.x.33? I ran the internet thru another PC standalone, without any problems at all, so couldnt be the internet line problem. thing is with the former PC running the mail, it works fine connected to internet and after some time, voila, there's no signal at all, but i am still connected.
could it be the internet network settings, or the network card problem? but what i dont understand is, it works fine for some time before going kapoot on me, or is there such thing as a timer set to it?
