My computer looses it IP address after a long period of inactivity

  1. I'm not sure why but my computer seems to loose its IP address after a long
    period of inactivity. Then I must reboot in order to get an IP address
    again. I'm running windows 98. Any ideas would be helpful

    How long a period? 3 days perhaps?
    click start, run
    type in "command" [no quotes]
    at the prompt, type ipconfig /release
    then type ipconfig /renew
