    Losing internet connection after a few minutes


    I'm currently using ubuntu and whenever I log into the os, I lose the internet connection after 4 or 5 minutes. Has anybody heard of this? No programs crash during this, i'll just be reading something on a website and the second i type a new address in, or click on a link it searches for the website for a minute and then gives up.
