unable to stay connected to internet

  231 20:56 02 Aug 2006

Wondering if anyone can help me out. Every time I start my computer I can browse the internet for about 10 minutes and then I get the message, "unable to connect". I use NTL broadband. I am unable to connect through Firefox or IE. My email (Thunderbird) has no problems. I have connected through safe mode and it still only lasts for 10 minutes. I have searched hi and low but have been unable to find a solution. Please help, much appreciated.
