I am probably in the wrong area here, but am getting desperate. I built a new machine with an ASUS M2N-SLI deluxe motherboard and an AMD 6000+ chip with a geforce 7600GT graphics card, and 4 Gb of memory on a Vista Ultimate Operating SYstem. For a time all went well, but since last week, my internet connection has been makeshift, It connects to the internet for the first few minutes after bootup, and then drops off, without warning or error messages. All things look o.k, but it just does not connect. I have tried disconnecting the network, rebooting the modem etc. but the problem persists. Anyone out there with any suggestions? I would be most grateful.
