I am sure this is an easy setting but here it goes. I start my computer and I can log onto the internet no problems but if and when I let it sit for about a half hour or so then try to get on the internet again I cant seem to get a connection. I tried to repair my LAN connection in network places but it still cant connect. The ony way for me to reconnect is to restart the computer. Then everything is fine again as long as I stay on the internet with out letting it sit idle for about 30 mins.

Any thoughts are greatly appreciated!

hello and welcome to geekstogo,
try this fix, on your tool bar you'll see two computer moniters (the pasrt of the computer that has a display like a TV) and might be flshging if there is any activity. Please right click on them. After doing so left click on open network connections. There you'll see an icon or two, right click on the one with your ISP (your internet provider), then left click properties. There you should see options. Click on this then go to the bottom of that window, and you'll see something that'll say the following "idle time before hanging up" beside this there will be a drop down menu, click on this and left click never.
This should clear up your problem, if you don't understand anything please post back and i'd be more then happy to help you out furthur.
