internet sort of times out

    Hello,
    If I leave my laptop for a bit while it's downloading something (not
    if I'm downloading something in the Windows update kinda thing, but just a
    regular download). After a while, the internet connection stays connected
    but stops working. None of my other computers do this. Any ideas?
    Thanks,
    Richard

  2. Use a different NIC. Or train your other computers to do it too.
