So, my internet connection keeps dying, for like a minute, then it comes back. It does this maybe once every 10 minutes or so. It makes me want to scream.

It wasn't a problem, until recently, when I got a new wireless modem. Here's some other info. I use Quest for my internet provider, and after running through the Event Viewer, it seems that this is the error it produces:

Source: DHCP
Event ID: 1003
Your computer was not able to renew its address from the network (from the DHCP Server) for the Network Card with network address 008185370C94. The following error occurred:
The operation was canceled by the user. . Your computer will continue to try and obtain an address on its own from the network address (DHCP) server.

Can anybody tell me what's going on, and preferably how to fix it? I can find other info if you want, just tell me what you need to know and how to find it.
Thank you so much.

Also, I don't know if this belongs here, because I'm running XP, or in the networking forum. Sorry if I picked the wrong one.

EDIT: I'm pretty sure it's the wrong place for this. I'm sorry for wasting your time, and I'll move it. I don't believe I can delete this, but if someone can, feel free to. Again, I'm sorry.
