I have an internet connection but cannot browse interminently

By youponder ·
PC: Lenovo T61 Notebook running Vista Business... a solid machine, only 3 months old.

Situation: Every couple of hours my browser stops working. This happens regardless of which wired or wireless network I'm connected to. Other PCs on the same network work fine while I'm down. Restarting the PC fixes the problem but it's getting really annoying having to continually reboot.

Sometimes I can access my default gateway, somtimes not. Sometimes I can access the local network, sometimes not. Sometimes I can access sites via IP sometimes not. Sometimes Skype works, sometimes not. IE or FF makes no difference. Really odd.

I've ran spyware checking software but no luck, I've limited running programs via Msconfig, no luck

Neither my ISP nor Lenovo could offer anything beyond 'it sounds like a DNS issue.'

Any help would be appreciated.
