Unhappy intermitent internet access problem

Hi all,
I'm having some problems with my Internet connection under linux. My ISP is Pluset. The problem appears when i'm surfing or using any other program that access the Internet, after download a few pages or files the connection stops.
When this happens I can not even access the modem-router setup page or ping it (router Alcatel version 3881). But if I wait a few minutes or if I restart the linux (logout does not work) the connection is back again. This happened to me under Mandrake 9.2 and Suse 8.9, and with different browsers or ftp clients, including Mandrake update. I checked the connection at the same time in my other computer (windows xp) and I have normal access.
The computer i'm having problems with is a Toshiba laptop Tecra 8200.

Thanks for the answer. It came out that my network card was faulty. Replaced and now is working.
