Yah... it might be that you router is reassigning the ip addresses and the computer is not refreshing it... If you have a dlink router this setting is under DHCP... Make it so that the lease time is 1 week and you shouldnt have any more problems... 8 times in a day... so like ever 2 hours... that could be the problem.. Good luck!

make sure your LAN card [network adapter] does not have the "allow computer to turn this device off to save power" option enabled...it is enabled by default on XP & W2k if i remember correctly. Always a good idea to disable "LMHOSTS Lookup" as well; another relatively useless gremlin in the TCP/IP realm.

good luck :)
