You really should go with regular modem, not a combo modem/router unit, then plug this regular modem into a regular router "WAN port' then to the PC's.

    As far as the intermittent connection goes, that is most likely from an installed program and the only way is to use the process of elimination. You can use Autorun's for Windows to track down that problem.

    Hi

    The DHCP is off on router and it's now on LAN as well and this is not the issue of my problems as I have already tried that configuration and completely disabling router as well.

    I'm interested in your "Autoruns" solution though but I'm not sure if I understand this correctly. I've now installed Autoruns but I am a bit confuse on how I should be tracking down the problem here. Did you mean to go to "Logon" tab and then uncheck one program, restart computer and wait few hours if disconnect happen? Then enable that one, disable next, restart,wait,etc... ? Just wanted to be sure before proceeding with this very long process.

    Yes it's process of elimination, you can disable them one at a time or narrow it down by disabling groups of programs then enabled them back one at a time until you find the problem.

    This is unbeliavable. Today I have bought a new computer (except for RAM and discs) and after doing another clean install on NEW computer, same thing happens again. I have installed so far only needed drivers for the sytem, Chrome, Office 2010, Skype and one poker client.

    I'm getting really frustrated over this as I just spent over 1k to see that this problem continues. If there is someone who might have an idea what this is PLEASE help, I'm willing to pay to someone who knows the solution as well.

    Thanks

    By that you mean using the "Restore to default" function ? I'll try that but I haven't touched firewall settings anyway.
