Ethernet card

Question

I have a cable modem and when I power up my computer, I connect to the internet just fine. After about 10 minutes, I lose my connection - no IE, no Outlook, no Mozilla - it says unable to connect to server. When I restart computer, I can connect again for 10 minutes then lose it. The cable modem is working fine with all lights green and I have troubleshot it already. Control panel shows my connections as just fine. I have virus scanned, nothing. Could my ethernet card be flaking out or what? Any ideas are greatly appreciated, thanks much!
