We have a cable modem that is constantly connected. The problem is that if you leave the computer idle for 30 minutes or so and then open up a browser, it can't find the webpage. When you look at the LAN connection, it says it's connected. So why can't Windows see that it's connected? This is really frustrating because we're always having to reboot.

Thank you.
