router seems to disconect the client computers from the internet after a few minutes

Hi all
I have a problem with my router

Previously when i first got the router both client computers that was online both had windows 98, I connected the router, installed the router wizard on the cd and boom both computers where working fine online.

I then recently change my operating system to windws 2000 NT technology, the other client has remained with windows 98, I have reset my router settings and tried to re-install the router settings via the cd. Both computers work with the internet for about a couple of minutes then all of a sudden our IE browsers stop working and we cannot access the internet anymore unless we restart our computers and re-power the modem and router. things like yahoo messenger seem to carry on working on the machines.

We use a cable connection for our internet, our router is just a standard broudband router made by Peak ( I believe)

Can anyone point me in  the right direction to fix our problem

Thank you.

I don't believe you problem is an issue with your router.  I say this because if you don't loose your connection to Instant Messanger, that means you are still on the internet.

Here are a couple of things to check:

Open a command prompt and type "ping www.google.com"... and then try "ping 64.233.171.104"

Reply back with your results and we can talk about it more from there.  I think that your problem is with a windows networking setting... perhaps DNS.
