Windows 7: Internet Explorer randomly disconnects

Internet Explorer randomly disconnects

Sometimes my Internet Explorer will randomly disconnect from the internet. Sometimes it will disconnect when I have left the computer for 10 minutes. Sometimes it will disconnect right in the middle of surfing the internet. It is only Internet Explorer because my anti-virus and my stand alone download manager will continue to be connected.

I have Windows 7 Pro and Internet Explorer9. I've had this problem before when I was on Windows XP and it only happens when I have had DSL (didn't happen when I had cable internet).

Is there a setting I am missing?

Have you tried uninstalling your download manager to see if the download manager is related to your problem?

What anti-virus software are you using?

Fluff out your system specs for us, so that we have more to work with.
