I recently had a problem where i would be disconnected from the internet after about 20 minutes. I was using a cable modem and this was quite frustrating. i was advised to run a command in the cmd prompt window which rebooted my PC and totally solved the problem.

The command was something like netsh ....something. can someone remember what it is?
