I did not have the problem with my last computer, but with this new Gateway I bought, I can keep an internet connection for about 5-10 minutes, then I will lose it for 3-6 minutes. Other two computers in the house work fine when this one is out. We have replaced all connections/wires, problem still persists. Took it to BB and they hooked it to their internet and it never went out (go figure). Anyone else having this problem?

Hi Hockey - its cable hookup through our local electric system. We had the same provider with my last computer and it never went off-line. Now when it goes off I am getting this "connect" box option that keeps popping up, then it wants usernames. I close it and it comes back on 5 minutes later and works for awhile.
Someone said it would be static building up, but my last one did not do this.
