Internet keeps crashing


hi,
hoping you guys can help me troubleshoot my problem. my internet seems to crash after certain instances. i am not sure if its bittorrent thats doing it or what? it seems whenever i leave my computer alone for awhile i come back and the internets dead so i have to do an ifdown/ifup to restore it.
i am using debian-etch, am wondering if it goes into some kind of standby mode and kills everything while im away? because it seems if i stay on the computer and work the internet will never die, but as soon as i walk away from it for awhile it dies?

can anyone help me to troubleshoot this one?

thanks.

Hi, hardware info would help us here (especially the NIC).

open a shell and type "dmesg" and post the relevant output here)
