Tips for a great answer:
When you set up a dial-up Internet service connection on your Windows computer, it comes automatically configured to disconnect itself after a predetermined period of inactivity.
This means that if you walk away from your computer and forget that you're online, your internet connection will automatically shut itself down.
If this feature isn't as helpful as you assumed it would be, you can turn it off using the Network and Sharing Center.
Click "Control Panel."
Click "Network and Sharing Center."
Click "Change Adapter Settings."
Right-click on your dial-up Internet service icon.
Clear the check box next to the "Auto Disconnect" listing on screen.
The auto disconnect on your computer Internet service connection is now turned off.
also if its running slow
Slow computers that persistently disconnect from Internet access may have issues with the wireless setup or if on a wired connection, there may be a problem with the Ethernet cable or port.
Troubleshooting connection and speed issues can save money rather than taking the computer to a technician or repair shop.
Additionally, some firewalls and security features can make it difficult to access certain types of websites.
Before spending money to have the computer diagnosed, try running through the most common, basic causes of connection issues.
Consider the type of site you are trying to access.
High-traffic sites such as gaming sites can sometimes be affected by high volumes of users accessing or attempting to access the site at once.
Test this by attempting to access the site at different times during the day and evening; peak hours for games that typically appeal to children may be during the afternoons on weekdays while games for older or more mature audiences will see high traffic at night.
Check your Internet connectivity and determine whether you are using a wired or wireless connection.
In the lower right side of the computer screen there should be an icon displaying the Internet or network connection.
Wireless connections are displayed with connection bars similar to those seen on cell phones while wired connections may show the end of a plug next to a monitor icon.
Reset the router if using a wireless connection.
For most home routers you simply unplug the power cord from the router box, wait a moment and plug it back in.
You may have to restart your computer to reestablish a secure connection.
Access the router through the computer and check for updates. Some routers offer firmware updates that fix some connectivity issues.
While updating the router, check for Internet browser updates as well as any critical updates for your computer's operating system.
Verify the computer uses the most up-to-date version of the Web browser available.
Try a different browser. Internet Explorer is the most commonly used Web browser, but not always the best for every site.
Try downloading another Web browser such as Firefox, Opera, or Google Chrome and test the sites there.
If the connections are still disconnected and the Internet speed seems slow, it may be an Internet issue.
Trace the Ethernet cable from the Internet modem to the computer if using a wired connection.
Unplug the end of the Ethernet cable and check that the plastic head is secure and that there is a click when you return the plug to the modem; do the same on the computer end.
Inspect the Ethernet cable carefully as it runs from the modem to the computer.
If the cable was tacked down with a staple gun or other attachment, check the cable to verify it wasn't accidentally pierced.
Additionally, check for bends, twists or worn areas along the cable.
Measure the length of the Ethernet cable.
In general, cables longer than 100 feet tend to receive poorer signal transmission.
If the cable is longer than 100 feet, replacing with a higher quality cable or moving the computer or Internet modem may resolve connection issues.
Hope this helps.

Are all computers connected to the router affected?
If so, try this first:
This addresses a common scenario where the router has been connected to the Internet for an extended period and holds an IP address (DHCP lease) for a longer period of time than your Internet Service Provider (ISP) allows.
This is normal and does not indicate any issue with your Belkin router or ISP.
If the router is located where you cannot easily unplug it, you can restart it using the router's web-based interface. If your DHCP lease time seems to be extremely short, contact your ISP to see if there are other issues on the network.
In certain network scenarios, it may be helpful to turn off all the equipment on your network, and then turn it all back on. Leaving some devices unplugged for up to five minutes can also help. Try unplugging the router, any switches, and any cable or DSL modems. Shut down connected computers. Plug in the cable or DSL modem first.
Plug in the Belkin router second, and wait for the lights to cycle through the startup routine. This prevents another device from taking the DHCP lease. Lastly, start up your computer.
Are just wireless clients affected?
If so, focus on factors that affect wireless clients, such as:
Are just wired clients affected?
If so, check your network adapter settings. Check all cable routing, connections, and power supplies.
Can you connect to the Internet directly?
Set up a computer to connect to the Internet directly, without the router.
If you cannot connect to the Internet without the router, please contact your Internet Service Provider for assistance.
Check your signal strength
You may lose your wireless connection if you go beyond the range of the router, or if there is an obstacle between your computer and the router that blocks wireless signals. You can check signal strength by opening your wireless adapter's interface.
Is your modem configured correctly?
For Windows XP and 2000:
1. Connect your computer to your modem with an Ethernet cable.
2. Click Start, and go to Run.
3. In the Run box, type CMD and click OK.
4. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.
For Windows Vista/7:
1. Connect your computer to the modem with an Ethernet cable.
2. Click the Start button and in the Start Search box, type cmd. You can either press Enter on your keyboard or click on cmd.exe when it appears in your search list.
3. In the DOS window that opens up, type ipconfig and then press Enter on your keyboard.
4. The IP address (or IPv4) will be a series of numbers following the pattern xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (for example, 192.168.2.2).
After following either of the steps above, your IP address is 192.168.xxx.xxx, then your modem is also a router and will need to be bridged by your ISP. If your IP address begins with a 169.254, your computer did not receive an IP address from your ISP.
