Question about Computers & Internet
Instead of turning your computer on and off, try repairing your internet connection by going to network connections. Once there, right click your active connection and clicking repair. This might save you the restarting process.

Thank you for using FixYa
I am going to try and help you on this issue. Unfortunately, I may not be able to see your next post to follow up since we only see each post as it come up.
The fact that you are able to get online and surf makes it difficult as you anticpated. My first memory jog relates to previous experiences I have had with my own computer and others of this same issue. One thing I do remember is that programs like Skype are heavy memory hogs. I wish I could see what is going on with your resources when all this is happening. There are utility programs that can monitor your use and you might be able to grab one off a freeware site like on CNET or ZDNET downloads. Running all those programs require heavy usage of RAM and increasing your RAM may be the best solution. It is interesting that you have been getting away with it up until now but that may not be your hardware at all and may relate to the Internet traffic and even your ISP capping your speed. Some of them have started to limit usage on heavy users and customers may start felling the pinch.
Here is what I would do first:
1. Load only one browser and turn off skype.
2. Try again to go on line and test it with just that one running and see if that helps.
3. If this helps then try adding back in another browser and see if it stops again. Add them back one at a time until you find which one may be the problem.
3. Contact your ISP and see if they have had or are now having any issues in your area.
4. Check and see if it relates to the time of day, for some reason.
5. If it is a wireless connection it may be that someone is high-jacking your signal and using your connection. That is even possible if you have a static IP address too.
6. Check your speed (Speedtest.net) and see if it is dropping off during the times you have to reboot.
This will give you some ideas as to what you can do to find the source of the problem.
I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.
