    The last few days, all three of my computers have started dropping their internet connection. I'll try to go to a new website and will get the "cannot connect to the website" message and I can see that the computer is no longer connected to a network. If I'm using IE at the time, I can switch over to Firefox and things will be back to normal....for a few minutes, then the same problem will start over. Usually shutting down and re-booting will solve the problem, but only very temporarily. What's going on? Could my modem be going bad?

    If you are using a Phone modem,,Yes it can be going.If you have Fios or Cable call them,they can run a diagnostic on your box(modem)..
