First talk to your ISP provider and get from them several PING addresses. USe these to see if you are completely connect and the packets are not lost. Try to Ping when you seem to have lost the the connection. If it comes back empty then of course the connection is completely broken

I am an engineer and I always like to start from the basics and insure I have good data.

Now also talk to your ISp, they may have a program to monitor inactivity and cut you off automatically, possibly due to the load on their system. Theoretically the connection should be always on once you go to IE or Mail. This of course causes hackers to try to get into your PC, thus the need of a firewall. Oh, hopefully you have Norton 2001, 2002, 2003 or 2004.

Based on the nature of the problem, it sounds like your using usb.  I am guessing that your Lease on your ip address is expiring, and your having trouble renewing the ip address.  Try typing this in a command prompt instead of restarting next time

ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

If you are using usb, get an eithernet card installed - usb sucks
