Lose internet connection few minutes after boot
Normally fast desktop stops connecting to internet, following first few successful connections after first boot or re-start. Machine connects OK on booting, or after re-start, but then fails to connect after a period of non use (5 mins, onwards).
But laptop, using identical software & same ADSL ethernet cable & router, connects OK
Windows XP SP3
ADSL via ethernet cable, to Zyxel router (new, with all cabling new)
Everything I know! i.e.
- Run McAfee virus scans
- Run Ad-aware scans
- Run Sophos anti root kit scans
- Compared all settings on both computers – the same
- Tried using each one of 4 available ports on the router
- BT engineers physically checked line
Any thoughts would be hugely welcome, plse

Are you disconnecting?
Does the connection drop?
Are you shutting down IE & OE and then restarting?
What version of IE?
Is the PC up-to-date with patches?
Have you checked the power management settings?
