I see that people page you in the tech forum and I know this is the wrong forum feel free to move after hopefully you can help.
I have a friend who has cable modem @ home. She uses a desktop ( windows XP ) Keeps losing connectivity and then getting booted offline ( within 5 to 10 minutes she says.)
provider has replaced modem 3 times, to no avail.
She said she can see the connectivity monitor go from max bars to no bars as she is online.
When her daughter plugs her laptop into the signal ( vista ) she can stay online all day-all night.
I had her disc cleanup and de-frag ( the extent of my knowledge )
