Can I get some advice from an IT expert?
The other day my computer started acting up, when I start surfing the net I can only look at 4-5 pages before my connection fails. The only way I can go back on the net is by restarting my computer. This is a rather annoying because that is what I mostly do with this thing. Any advice would be most welcome.
I’ve run anti-virus scanners and anti spy ware, and the problem continues.
I’d take it into a shop or better yet buy a new one but I’m on disability right now so that is not really an option.
Any advice would be much appreciated.

Check in your event viewer if you have error #4226.

"TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts."

Microsoft badly mangled the TCP stack in Windows XP SP2, limited to 10 SYN connections in an effort to help stop virus spreading.

Yeah right, smart move Microsoft. Now we have to reboot our computer every 15 minutes when using network intensive applications.

An unofficial patch found at may or may not fix your problem by letting you raise the connections limit.

You just might find that the issue is your wireless router failing.
Do you happen to be using a "netgear" wireless router-they r know for having this kind of issues.
Do you experience these issues both wired and wireless?

I can't conect the cable right to my computer because I don't have the proper port.
