Windows 7: Internet connection lost when using IE 8

Internet connection lost when using IE 8

For the past couple of weeks my internet connection has been failing 5 or 6 times a day. My ISP has been working to try to solve this problem but all their tweaking hasn't helped much. I have now noticed that the connection gets cut off when I click on a link to open a site in IE 8. I'm not that fast on the mouse or keyboard but the faster I click a link the more likely I seem to lose the connection. I really cannot see that this could be the cause but I have installed Chrome today and haven't yet lost the connection. Any one with a view on this I would be pleased to hear from!
Edit:
I should have said that I use a Billion ADSL+2 router

You could try reseting the settings using Microsoft 'Fix it'

Was going to give it till tomorrow to be sure but yes, so far 100% success. I have advised my ISP who say that they have nevercome across it before. just out of interest, I can't work out how IE can affect the router, have you any ideas?
