Did you mention the firewall? Firewalls can cause so much problem.
Try to disable the firewall if any and try again.

If you restart your computer and all is working fine for a while and then
boom the connection is gone it might by a speed sync error.

In some case the cable modem is working under 10MB speed conditions and may
have difficulties to switch between 100MB and 10MB. You may try to lock your
(internet) NIC onto 10MB speed instead of automatc detection (see your
network options to do so).
