Losing Internet Connection

Steveh24 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-10
I am connected to the internet using a wired connection through my router and for the past week or so I have been losing my Internet connection and it's quite annoying as the only fix is to reboot the PC and all is well again.

When I lose my connection I can still ping my router and various sites on the internet ie. BBC.co.uk

I have another PC connected to the same router and that one still works ok when I lose my connection and I have tried swapping the ports, but is makes no difference so the problem is with the PC and not my Modem/Router

Can someone tell me why this is happening and what can I do to fix it
