Default internet explorer

hello all! first of i would like to say i have learned a great deal from this forum by using the search function. however, i have run into a problem that i cannot seem to figure out. i currently have sbc dsl without the yahoo crap. i have noticed that whenever i close internet explorer for long periods of time (like all night) it will not allow me to access a web page whenever i decide to click on the "e". it says web page unavailable whenever i click on the "e" to take me to my homepage. so, i have to restart the machine and everything is fine. i have run norton and spybot and have not found anything wrong. i have also checked my connection at the modem and i am logged in. btw, i have a speedstream 5100 and the power, ethernet, dsl, and internet are lit. thanks in advance!

have you tried just doing an IP refresh? might be a lease timeout or something like that.

its one of the quirks that happens every once and a while with broadband internet.

If you're having to do this continually, call up your ISP and have them troubleshoot their service.
