    my wireless connection stops responding after 30 mins of browsing.

    hi. i am using an Acer aspire with windows 7 home premium 64bit installed. recently i been experiencing connection issues. my wireless says its on. at first i have no problem with surfing the internet. but then after 30 mins or so. the internet stops responding. doesnt freeze or anything. just stops responding. taking a long tme to load a page. things like that. i never had this problem before. all though i must say. i am using someone elses wireless network. because its open connection. i been using it for 2 years without any problems. i was using google chrome before. and the problem was happening still. and now i am using firefox. and still its happening. i forgot to mention something. when the internet stops responding. i restart my computer. and the internet responds again. but then stops responding again. then i restart computer again, (its just a cycle) that gets annoying. any help would be nice. thank you.

    I agree with Rui. If you are using someone's internet connection without their permission this is not ethical, and might be considered illegal. Perhaps the person you seem to be "stealing" connectivity from has figured out how to close their connection to outside users.

    Do you have permission to use someone else's network?

    I don't know if that is the problem, but you need to get permission from the network owner or get your own internet access.

    You definitely need to get permission. If the owner finds out what you are doing you could be in trouble. If the connection is a freely distributed Wii connection at a known business location, for example Starbucks, then that's one thing, but if you are tapping into a neighbor's WiFi without their permission, that is quite another matter.
