Ok here is the deal, every 10-15 minutes my internet just simply stops working now here is the odd part is SAYS that it is still connected and when I attempt to go to a site it does not even say "problem loading page"...it simply wont do anything at all until I disconnect and reconnect my via internet options. I have had the AT&T guy out here twice and he insist its my computer so I now turn to you. Also during my brief internet time I do get it, it goes insanely slow, taking as long as a full 2 minutes for a google search.

I have attempted scan after scan as well as defragging. I have also reinstalled the DSL. The last program that I downloaded of the internet was PokerStars however this did not start happening till probably 2 weeks later.Here are the virus programs I use and whatnot.

AVG 7.5 (negative for viruses)
Ad-Aware (nothing here either)

I have direct to wall AT&T DSL.

Bare in mind that my computer is over 6 years old so it may just be time to put it to bed. Thank you for your help.
