    My pc is connected to the router by a wired port, this is a wireless router
    with wired ports.
    The router is connected to a cable modem. I have a Norton Internet Security,
    I am using the
    Norton firewall, and the Windows firewall is OFF.
    The problem is sometimes, maybe once a week, the Internet connection is
    Lost, so usually
    I re-boot until the Internet connection comes back on, sometimes I have to
    re-boot 3/4 times,
    sometimes I have to shut down the pc for the whole day, before the Internet
    connection comes on again.
    It seems that somehow my Internet connection is lost, and I dont know why.
    Anyone please help.

    Next time try just unplugging your router for a minute, then plug it back
    in. Check for the latest firmware for your router. Mine loses it like that
    too and unfortunately the firmware upgrade didn't help me, but you'll never
    know until you try. Rebooting the router works for me, I have to do it an
    average of once a week.
