i run windows 7, every once in a while, my internet connection would "blink" all internet would stop for maybe under 5 seconds, and come right back on, no reason that i can find for this, its not a hardware problem, it happens on both wired and wireless, on the icon in the corner does not change to say anything is wrong, the net just turns off for a moment then comes back, i want to find a software that will tell me where the problem is, what is running that is causing the problem

How do you know that the "internet stops" ?

Browser stops updating ? or what ?

i finaly had the notion to look at the event viewer and found this, "The IP address lease for the Network Card with network address 0x001d92a9bcf4 has been denied by the DHCP server (The DHCP Server sent a DHCPNACK message)."

now i know what the issue is i have no idea how to fix it and i've looked all over for an answer
