I have a cable modem connected to DLink router then to my Dell Dimension 2100 PC. Lately it appears that if my PC is idle for 15 to 20 minutes I will lose my internet connection. I usually unplug my cable modem and reconnect after 10 seconds. This procedure will normally allow me to establish my internet connection. My question is is my cable modem failing or my router ? Is there some troubleshooting I can perform ? My ISP provider, also modem provider, says the modem is OK I would like a second opinion.
