1. turn off your system (computer, router(if you use one) and modem)
2. Turn them back on one at a time in this order and wait for each one to fully boot up. Modem, router then the computer.
Log on to a web site, and pay attention to the traffic light (download and upload) on your modem and router.
If you get a drop off that cause windows to notify of a broken connection, backtrack the signal from the computer to the wall phone jack for connections:
Network card in your computer (to include a WIFI card). Cable to router (unless using a WIFI card, then see if you are getting good signal strength and link strength) Then router to modem, then finally modem to wall jack.
If any of these connections are loose or worn, your connection may be intermittent.
But here is something I have noticed: If you are connected to a router, and the router looses the signal or connection, you will get a popup on your system tray indicating a dropped connection. But if your modem loses the signal, your computer will not show a dropped connection because the network card is looking at the router for a signal which is still there even though your modem drops out.
Go forth a find out what your problem is with the advice given and good luck.
