Morning...Not sure if this is a big problem, but here it goes. My son built me a computer and since then, when I log on in the morning, everything works great, but after I log off and either I or my husband try to log back on to the internet,even after just a few minutes, it doesn't connect to the internet. If we wait anywhere from a 1/2 hour to 1/2 day, it usually resets and we are able to log on to the internet. During this, the modem and router all have green lights and the computer says we have a strong signal, and all other programs work fine. This is a desktop wired to the modem, but if I can't log on, on to the desktop, my wireless laptop can't log on either. I've even tried to shut down the computer and reset the modem, but nothing helps, we just sit and wait for it to reset..What ever "It" is.

I'm running a Intel Pentium 4 cpu, 2.40 GHZ, 1.00 GB Ram, Win xp home 2002, service pack 2, Modem and Netgear Router, Mozilla/Firefox.
I run malwarebytes and have Avast Home for anti-virus.

Could this be a problem with the computer or with the modem? OR maybe the ethernet card?
Thanks for any help that you can give.
