You on DSL ? You're not connecting with software provided by the ISP I hope, but using built-in function in XP and later OS, or using raspppoe on win2k. Or even, better your router takes care of connections.
You might want to check your MTU settings, as that is a common source of intermittent disconnect and sites that stop loading on DSL connections.
Edit : Duh, you said cable modem... That said, MTU issues also arise with cable modems, as you can see by doing a quick google on it
