IE browser loses internet connection



I am having problems with IE losing the internet connection. This means that
after displaying a web page and then waiting about 10-15 minutes, I am unable
to browse to any web site. I get the error "unable to load web page".

However, I am able to open a DOS window and ping web sites, I can also send
and receive email from Outlook Express.

I have tried switching browsers, scanning for viruses and even checked for
winsock corruption but nothing seems to work.

When this does happen I have a Cisco VPN client that allows me to log into
my network at work. After I establish the connection and then disconnect from
the VPN, I can then browse the internet without issues.

My setup is XP Pro with latest service pack and Linksys wireless hardware.

Any ideas?
