Possibly an overheating modem.  Contact your ISP.

not the modem, I connect the cable to a new pc and it stays up.  Seems like it a nic issue or something else.  I changed the nic twice now.  So somthin is causing it to bloack net access after a while.  I don;t know

Is your NIC powering down to save energy?

I had a similar problem last year, turned out to be the signal degradation from my isp, seems when they ran my lines the signal was sufficient to handle my load... but as neighbors around me got internet added the signal dropped... they ended up having to run a new hardline to boost my signals, I had tried several modems and could not get the problem solved, after they ran new lines, no more problems. Have your isp send a tech out and test the signal strength of both incoming and outgoing.

Spoke with ISp and Comcast said that there were damage to our main feed in our area.  Allthough they have not been out yet, it seems like this may be it.  Your senero prompted e to call them
