Default Connection randomly shutting off...

I have a cable connection, routed to this comp...

This is a brand new 1800 dollar comp...

My previous computer never had this problem...

I am sitting here doing stuff... etc... and it randomly just doesnt get net... It still says "connected" in the Network Connection page...

Then to fix it I have to disable, and enable it... And it works fine... Then again in like 10 mins shuts...

What could it be?

Well, try disconnecting all the other computers to the router and only connect it to your pc and see if the problem still is there.

All other comps aren't ever running at the same time the problem occurs...

ok well buy a ethernet card there not expensive like 5-15 dollars, and see if that works. Sounds like the onboard etherent is not good.
