Internet loss. Any suggestions? in User to User Help Posted August 23, 2007 · Edited August 23, 2007 by d0nut · Report reply Thanks, Mouse and Kram. I am feeding my cable directly into my modem, and from the modem straight into the ethernet socket on my mobo. The same cables and modem are fine on my laptop. Forgot to mention that if I call my ISP, they connect me with a new IP address which is OK usually until I power down, sometimes before.
