Network Help - loses internet connection

I have recently created a home network connecting to Blueyonder cable modem via a DLink Dl-644 router. I have an older Win98 computer connected to the router and a newer XP too. The network works fine for several days then seems to lose the connection to the internet - it becomes really slow and the Win 98 computer loses the system tray icon for network sharing.
The only way i have found to get the connection back is to restart the network from scratch with the 98 machine and use rollback for the XP machine but this only works temporarily and the same problem happens again.
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
I'd be really grateful for ant suggestions!!
TIA
