This has been a problem for a while now... If I stop surfing the net on my desktop or laptop for more than about 30 mins.. When I come back and open my browser it says that it is unable to locate the site... The indicators in the system tray show that I am still connected but nothing happens when you open a web page. I have tried disconnecting and reconnecting but that doesn't help... I have tried using the repair option - no good either. The only thing that helps is a restart. I have XP SP2 and I use Firefox.

Any Ideas????

Thanks

I am not too sure of what the problem is, but I would make sure you have all the Firefox updates with the latest version.

After about 30 mins of inactivity on the internet - if I try to do anything on the net (email, going to my home page or just surfing in general) I can't. It's like I'm not connected. But if you go down to the system tray and click the icons that show your connection status, it shows that I am connected. If I disconnect and reconnect still nothing - and the repair option doesn't help either. I have to do a system restart. It also doesn't matter which browser I'm using - IE, Firefox or Opera...I prefer Firefox though. If I try to get email (thunderbird), I get the "cannot connect to server".
