everything says connected but not until reboot

After my pc has been on a while I sometimes loose connection. Messenger troubleshooter always stops at DNS "your system is unable to translate IP address". My netgear router says connected all the lights are steady but nothing gets me back on line until I restart. Do you think this is a router problem? As always any suggestions welcomes - thanks in advance.
